Twelve students from Our Lady of Fatima School in Wilton were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) during a ceremony on April 6.

Selection into the honor society requires seventh and eighth graders to meet criteria in the areas of character, leadership, service, and a cumulative academic average of a B+ in all courses.

Eligible students must submit an essay detailing their qualifications and experience in showing:


  • Spirit, confidence and generosity in and out of school.

  • Leadership positions in school or sports.

  • Volunteering and community service.


Students are also required to have conduct ratings of either excellent or good.

“These middle school students are wonderful role models for our entire school,” said Our Lady of Fatima Principal Martha Reitman.

Eighth grader Sarah D’Alto and the following seventh graders were inducted this year: Frank Bonaddio, Giulia Emanuel, Daniella Gama, Caitlin Greeff, Miranda Hancock, Meghan Koziolkowsky, Christina O’Sullivan, Anastasiya Pshyk, Andrew Rubsam, Meaghan Sabino, and Aaron Wong.

Permanent eighth grade NJHS members include: Ryan Davis, Mary Feeney, Kyle Gordon, Brian Hartz, Whit Lupoli, Nancy Lynch, Ria Narula, Lauren Oskam, Paula Perez, Gabriella Perez, Allison Pomeroy, Brian Rooney, and David Zahrah.

“We are incredibly proud of the achievement of this distinguished group of students,” said middle school ELA teacher and NJHS chapter advisor Danielle Mancuso.
