The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established in 1929 to recognize outstanding middle school students. The NJHS is more than just an honor roll, it recognizes those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of: scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. It is unique, in that, it not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but challenges them to continue striving and further develop themselves through active involvement in school activities, sports, and community service.
One of our Advantage athletes, Ben Nakata (06 Elite), was recently inducted into the NJHS. He is a high honor roll student attending St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School on Cape Cod. Ben is a seventh grader, who works hard to balance his love of hockey and sports with his drive to excel in school. He plays piano, and volunteers in his community and tries to be a good role model to his peers and younger classmates. Being respectful and kind are traits he strives to uphold. Ben is an example of a Boston Advantage Athlete. We, at Lovell Hockey, want to recognize his achievement and the achievements of all our dedicated athletes and hard working students. The discipline and lessons learned on the ice apply to the classroom and to life as well. Congratulations to Ben and all our athlete-scholars!
