The National Honor Society of Cox Mill High School
Due to school closure in March 2020, NHS induction and officer elections will take place at the beginning of the school year. In August, students accepted into NHS will receive updated information on our first meeting. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The National Honor Society is the leader among organizations and societies that promote appropriate recognition for students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service.
To become a member, juniors must meet the requirements for
**Scholarship: A cumulative weighted GPA of 4.2 or higher after 2nd semester calculations--please note the change from previous years. This applies to the induction class of 2021.
*Service: At least 10 hours of documented community service within the current school year and at least 1 out-of-school activity in which they actively participate.
*Leadership: Adequate leadership qualities which are detailed through teacher recommendations.
*Character: Have demonstrated positive character traits in their choices both in and out of school.
**After 2nd semester ends in 2021, juniors who meet the scholarship requirement (4.2 weighted cumulative GPA) will be invited to complete an application detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, and character. Students will only be able to apply by invitation if they have met this grade threshold.
Understanding the Obligations of Membership
Students who accept membership and are inducted into the chapter should be aware of the time and commitment involved with this honor. For example, there will be chapter meetings. The chapter bylaws should articulate the yearly meeting schedule and member attendance obligations. Members also must participate in chapter and individual service projects to benefit the school and community.Adviser: Susan ShupingUpcoming events:2020-2021 applications due by TBDInduction practice (all members, new and existing) -Tuesday, March 24, 2020, 2:30-3:15pm--cancelled.Induction of 2019-20 members (all members, new and existing) - Thursday, March 26, 2020, 6:00pm--postponed.
