Thirty students - 29 juniors and one senior -
were inducted into the National Honor Society before their friends
and family during a ceremony at the high school tonight.
The honor culminates years of work and
achievements by the students. The
students needed to prove achievement in four areas: scholarship,
leadership, service and character (see the descriptions below).
The inductees are:
Mary Kate Palleschi
How are new members considered for induction?
Membership into the
National Honor Society is based on four categories:
Scholarship, Leadership & participation, Service, and Character
88% cumulative average
A) Two years of active participation in two clubs, organizations
or teams. Clubs, organizations or teams can be school or community
sponsored but at least one must be school sponsored. A maximum of
one sports team may be used for qualification.
B) One elective or voluntary leadership position must be
demonstrated in the club participation component.
This position can include but is not limited to the organization
of a major event, class or club officer, or team captain.
C) A student using a community-sponsored component must have an
official representative of the community activity attest to the
student’s participation or leadership in that activity.
45 hours of volunteer service, in school or community activities,
completed by the middle of junior year will meet this requirement.
Evidence of good attitude, cooperation and ethical standards as
determined by the faculty.
