NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY SELECTION
Once a year new members are selected for the National Honor Society (NHS). Membership into NHS is based upon outstanding achievement in four areas: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Juniors (Class of 2020) are eligible if they have achieved a grade point average of 3.50 and Seniors (Class of 2019) are eligible if they have achieved a 3.50 grade point average for their high school career. Those students having achieved this goal will receive an invitation to submit information for consideration by the faculty advisory committee for induction into the NHS. The information sheets will assist the faculty advisory committee in the selection of those students to be inducted into the NHS.
NHS Selection Policy
“Students may not apply for membership in the National Honor Society. Membership is granted only to those students selected by the Faculty Council in each school. A student who has been in attendance for at least the equivalent of one full semester, is a member of the junior or senior class, and has met the minimum scholarship qualifications is eligible for selection must then be considered for membership on the basis of Service, Leadership, and Character.”
Students joining NHS must be aware of the continuous requirements of maintaining their GPA, Leadership, Character, and Service. The service requirements are a minimum of twenty-five hours over the course of the academic year. If you feel that you are unable to complete these requirements then the NHS may not be the organization for you. A National Honor Society member must maintain the requirements as stated above and attend monthly meetings. Failure to meet these expectations will result in removal from the organization.
