National Honor Society

The Mingo Central High School chapter of National Honor Society offers membership to juniors and seniors. Membership in this chapter is an honor bestowed upon deserving students by the faculty and shall be based on the criteria of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. To be eligible for selection to membership in this chapter, the candidate must have been enrolled for at least one semester at Mingo Central. The candidate have a minimum cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. This average will include all grades for which the candidate earned graduation credits in grades 8, 9, and 10. Only final grades for the courses (not progress report grades, nor 1st semester grades) will be used to determine the GPA. Upon meeting the grade level, enrollment, and GPA standards, candidates shall then be considered based on their service, leadership, and character. Candidates will be given two opportunities to meet these standards. One opportunity will be given after completion of the 10th grade and the second opportunity will be after the completion of the 11th grade. Candidates become members when inducted at a special ceremony.

Members of this chapter should fully understand that they are subject to dismissal if they do not maintain the standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character there were used as the basis of their selection for membership. Members can be disciplined and are considered to be "not in good standing" with the chapter. If the deficiencies are not resolved during the warning period, the member may be considered for dismissal. If the member is a senior, recognition, including cord or stole, may be withheld at graduation. Keep these standards in mind and always make decisions that will allow you to be a candidate for the National Honor Society.
