Carly Sills, a student at West Hempstead High School, was one of two high school seniors chosen to speak at the National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony for the Island Park School District’s Lincoln Orens Middle School.

As tradition, Lincoln Orens invites the two seniors who hold the highest grade point average from West Hempstead and Long Beach high schools to address the younger students and encourage their academic success in high school.     

Alongside Carly, Long Beach High School senior Joseph Aebly offered words of advice and inspiration to the 28 newly inducted members. NJHS members are selected based on their demonstration of the society’s five core values – scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship – as well as specific academic requirements.

The West Hempstead School District is proud of Carly for leading by example and inspiring her peers.
