GRAND SALINE--One of the most prestigious accomplishments in the high school scholastic arena is to be invited into the ranks of the National Honors Society. Monday night Grand Saline High School named the 2017 class of NHS inductees into this elite fellowship.
To become a member of NHS, you must be selected as a candidate by your chapter's faculty council. Students who meet their chapter's cumulative GPA requirement are then considered for membership on the basis of service, leadership and character.
Membership is determined by a majority vote of the faculty council, following an evaluation of candidates' qualifications for membership.
Students in grades 10–12 who meet the requirements for membership outlined by their school’s chapter are eligible to be invited for membership.
Each chapter is required to publish its qualifications for membership, which is based on the four pillars of NHS:
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.)
This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
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.
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.
Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, and character.
Monday night 20 GSISD students were applauded as they recieved this high accolade. The 2017 GSHS NHS inductees are: Lana Whitson, Morgan Stilwell, Sunny Robertson, Ana Pruneda, Delana Meyer, Sarah Elliott, Joslin Miller, Piper Fisher, Fernando Sanchez, Luke Morrison, Bryce Smith, Savannah Sauseda, Sarah Roach, Mason Perritt, Cameron Lowe, Grant Lewis, William Mendoza, Jose Lopez, Aubrey Barnes, Gavin Foster.
These students join the current GSHS NHS members: Alec Autry, Fletcher Burchell, Morgan Cannon, Shayne Carnes, Randy Denton, Emily Duckworth, Levi Hawkins, Bhtoschi Holland, Phillip LaPrade, Jordan Lovette, Connor Lowe, Derek Mayhugh, Chase Riveire, Liz Sanchez and Jaxon Taylor.
