MIFFLINTOWN — East Juniata High School’s National Honor Society was recognized Tuesday by Juniata County Commissioners during the board’s weekly meeting.

This recognition is a part of the Juniata County Youth Spotlight program being coordinated by the Juniata County Prevention Board.

The National Honor Society is a community service organization and every member is required to complete a certain number of community service hours in-school and out-of-school. Members are also required to attend monthly meetings before school.

The purpose of the National Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship and academic excellence, encourage a desire to serve others within the school and the community at large, promote leadership and nurture the development of good character.

In attendance was President of the club Marley Wilson, Treasurer, Rebekah Ehrisman, Vice President, Autumn Fronk, Vice President, Secretary, Laylah Reichenbach, and representative Kaylee Shirk representing the National Honor Society.

The organization offers group and individual activities and so far this year they held a blood drive as well as a hat and coat drive. They participated in field days at the elementary schools in Lewistown the last two years.

“The Prevention Board wanted to recognize these students because we wanted to say, we do see you, we do recognize you and we do appreciate what you’re doing in the community and we look forward to seeing what you’re going to do in the future in our community to make our community better for everyone,” said Juniata County Prevention Board representative Robin White.

Also during the meeting, the board:

Approved the resignation of Casandra L. Brumbaugh from her position as a Children & Youth Services full-time caseworker effective as of the end of business on May 17;

Approved CDBG-IDIS checks as submitted by the Juniata County Planning and Community Development Department for project cost in the amount of $22,210.38 to George Ely Associates, Inc. as well as project costs in the amount of $16,890 to CD Escrow Seda-Cog Administration and $26,907 to the SEDA-Cog Administration.
