National Honor Society

Those juniors and seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.7 or higher at the end of the first semester of their junior/senior year are eligible for membership.  Any student, who meets criteria, will be contacted to fill out appropriate forms to be considered for membership. (see Activity Handbook for complete process)

Membership to the National Honor Society is a privilege, not a right, based on four criteria: scholarship, character, service and activities, and leadership.   A candidate must qualify in each area in order to be considered for membership.

  1. Scholarship:  A student must have a 3.7 grade point average or above.

  1. Character:  A student must average a positive teacher/coach/sponsor response.  In order to do this, the sponsor will take all of the evaluation forms and average the total score.  A positive response is considered to be a 4 out of 5 or better.

  1. School Activities/Leadership:  See attached form.  A total of seven points are needed to qualify for NHS.  Each organization/leadership activity must be signed by that sponsor to qualify.

  1. Community Service:   See attached form.  A student must have 25 hours of community service from at least two sources.  List your volunteer work or service in community activities such as scouting, church, 4-H, Recreation Commission, helping senior citizens, ect.  Community service is defined as doing an activity for someone other than family for which you don’t get monetary compensation.  Concession stands for school clubs does not count as community service.

When the form is completed, the faculty council will vote on the eligibility of each student candidate.  The vote of each member will not be published but the total vote of the council may be published.  Once a student is selected, members have the responsibility to continue to meet the criteria and be in good standing, or dismissal will occur.  Members who resign or are dismissed are never again eligible for membership or its benefits.

The faculty council shall consist of five voting faculty members appointed annually by the principal.  No principal or assistant principal may be included on the faculty council.  The faculty council shall meet at least once a year to select members and to consider dismissal, non-selection, and warning cases.

A chapter advisor shall be selected and appointed annually by the principal, and be responsible for direct day-to-day supervision of the chapter.
