National Honor Society

The selection process for new members of NHS begins in December. Steps are as follows:

  1. All sophomores who have a GPA of 3.5 and all juniors and seniors who have a GPA of 3.3 are academically eligible. On December 7, 2015, students who are academically eligible will be notified via an announcement list placed on the office windows. A daily Bobcat bulletin announcement will alert students to the presence of this list.
  2. On December 16, 2015, a meeting will be held for interested students to explain the application procedures. A packet containing application forms will be given to each interested student. Completed forms will be submitted to the advisor by January 15, 2016, and these will be scanned for teachers to review. All teachers will receive a list of eligible students who have applied.
  3. All teachers are to review the student applications and note any concerns about any of the candidates that they may have in the areas of leadership, character, scholarship, or service.
  4. By Feb 8, 2016, each teacher will contact his or her assigned NHS faculty council member with his or her list of approved candidates and voice their concerns about those whose eligibility they may question.
  5. Based on the teacher’s recommendations in their group, each faculty council member will submit their list of candidates’ names to the advisors, indicating “yes” to those they approve for nominations and “no” to those who should be denied membership. The advisors will tally each of the faculty council members’ votes. (These tallies remain confidential). Three out of the five faculty council members must have voted for a candidate, for the candidate to be selected.
  6. A meeting with the faculty council is scheduled for February 17, 2016, to determine which candidates will be selected to the WDHS National Honor Society.
  7. The candidates are informed of their selection or denial by a letter on March 18, 2016.
  8. Induction is scheduled for April 26, 2016 at 7:30 in the old gym.

(The process of election is under the supervision and direction of the national office of NHS and designated in the handbook).
