Change to NHS Induction
By Rachel Costantini
National Honor Society (NHS) induction serves to recognize students that are more than just honor roll students. Students inducted into NHS have demonstrated excellence in areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. In order to be eligible for induction, a student must have 92% grade point average and write a paper explaining how they have excelled in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Mr. Koba, a science teacher in the high school, has been in charge of NHS for the past few years. He has decided to change when induction into National Honor Society is. In the past, induction has been in the fall for juniors and seniors. This year, however, there will also be an induction in March for sophomores and juniors who meet the NHS qualifications. From March on, Mr. Koba only plans to have one induction per year, in the spring. Students will have the opportunity to be inducted in the spring of their Sophomore year. If they do not meet the qualifications then, they will have a chance to bring their grades up, so the could be inducted in the spring of their junior year. This change to NHS induction should go smoothly and Mr. Koba believes this will give the members of National Honor Society a chance to be a part of this organization for a longer period of time before they graduate.
