Paying Compliments Forward

James Wilson Young Middle School students adopted the mantra pay it forward when the National Junior Honor Society coordinated an event in honor of National Compliment Day. Inspired to spread cheer throughout the building, eighth-grader Bridget Wehrle organized the NJHS’s female members to write inspirational and complimentary messages on the mirrors in all of the female faculty and student bathrooms. The program reminded students to embody positive character traits and served as a character-building activity.

Each year, individuals across the nation extend compliments to others, as a way to increase morale and other’s self-esteem.
