Being selected as a member is a privilege and not a right. To be eligible for membership, a student must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4 point scale and complete 15 hours of community service.
The process incorporated to determine membership is as follows:
Step #1--Students who have earned a minimum grade point of 3.25 are given an invitation in the form of a letter to submit a typed resume of their activities and a short essay. Each candidate must have 15 hours of community service in order to submit a resume. All materials MUST be submitted to Mr. Van Scoyoc by February 17th.
Step #2--Each high school faculty member evaluates students in the areas of leadership, service, and character. Click to download the NHS Teacher Evaluation Form PDF File used.
Step #3--Results are compiled and reviewed by a Faculty Council appointed by the principal. Students selected for membership are determined by this Faculty Council.
