Let’s be honest. It’s not easy to get middle school kids to voluntarily spend half a Saturday in a team-building exercise on campus. But that’s exactly what 55 Athens Middle School students did at the end of August. Such is the strength of the National Junior Honor Society in its second year at AMS.
“These are kids trying to come together and impact the culture of their school in a positive way,” said Maureen Bogowitz, NJHS sponsor and academic dean at AMS.
The premise of the half-day camp was to focus on what Bogowitz calls “lollipop moments” — a term from a story by author Drew Dudley, in which he describes giving a stranger a lollipop in a humorous exchange that, he learned years later, ended up fundamentally making that person’s life better.
