Lutheran Junior Honor Association

LEA’s Lutheran Junior Honor Association task force designed Lutheran Junior Honor Association (LJHA) for Lutheran schools to recognize students who exercise leadership, servanthood, and discipleship, while excelling at academics and to foster these qualities through service projects and other activities.   

Among the highlights of LJHA are the following:

·         Any Lutheran school may apply for a charter.

·         Membership is available to any fifth, sixth seventh, or eighth grade student that meets the chapter requirements in a chartered Lutheran school.

·         The chartering fee is $150.00.

·         The annual affiliation fee is $75.00.

·         Lutheran Education Association is the sponsoring organization and will operate the organization according to the Guidelines for the Lutheran Junior Honor Association.

The originating LJHA task force will also serve as the initial management team. Many thanks to Denise Rice (Chair), Shirley Geiss, Keith GeRue, Ann Ryherd, and Suzan Winkelman for their work in this new LEA initiative.
