About NHS

The East Greenwich Chapter of the National Honor Society is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership
is open to those students who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Standards for
selection are established by the national office of NHS and have been revised to meet our local chapter needs. Students are selected to be members by a
Faculty Council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school each Fall and Spring.

Students in the 11th or 12th grades are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student must have a career GPA of 3.700 or better.
Those students who meet this criterion are invited to complete a Student Activity Information Form that provides the Faculty Council with information
regarding the candidate’s leadership and service. A history of leadership experiences and participation in school or community service is also required.

To evaluate a candidate’s character, the Faculty Council uses two forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, members of the
faculty are solicited for input regarding their professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership. These forms and the
Student Activity Information Forms are carefully reviewed by the Faculty Council to determine membership. A majority vote of the Council is necessary
for selection. Candidates are notified regarding selection or non-selection according to a predetermined schedule.

Following notification, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly selected members. Once inducted, new members are
required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all four criteria that led to their selection. This obligation includes regular
attendance at chapter meetings held the 3rd Thursday of each month during the school year, and participation in the chapter service projects(s). Students or
parents who have questions regarding the selection process or membership obligations can contact the chapter adviser, Mr. Lenox.
