    To become a member, juniors must meet the requirements for

    **After 2nd semester ends in 2021, juniors who meet the scholarship requirement (4.2 weighted cumulative GPA) will be invited in August 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.
