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).

How are new members considered for induction?
Membership into the National Honor Society is based on four categories: Scholarship, Leadership & participation, Service, and Character
1. Scholarship: 88% cumulative average
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
3. Service: 45 hours of volunteer service, in school or community activities, completed by the middle of junior year will meet this requirement.
4. Character: Evidence of good attitude, cooperation and ethical standards as determined by the faculty.
