The National Honor Society sets membership requirements that may be exceeded or expanded by each chapter. From the website, National Honor Society, minimum membership requirements are as follows:

  • Scholarship
    Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)
  • Service
    This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
  • Leadership
    Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
  • Character
    The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.

In addition to the above, each potential member must complete an application form and have it reviewed by teachers at the school.

It should be noted that some new members were unable to attend the ceremony due to community and team obligations. Several members were away representing Arkansas High at a soccer game.

The Four States News would like to congratulate all new members to the National Honor Society, and encourage you each to continue to maintain your high education standards and your work and contributions to your community.
