Honoring 50 National Honor Society Inductees!

Fifty Colchester High School students were recently inducted into National Honor Society!

The National Honor Society (NHS)—which has chapters in all fifty states as well as in many US territories and in Canada—recognizes high school students in grades 10–12 who have exhibited outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

This prestigious affiliation can only be obtained after a stringent selection process. In order to be considered for induction, candidates must detail their achievements in service and leadership and must meet the cumulative grade-point average requirement. Input about the candidates from faculty members can also be submitted to the local NHS chapter’s faculty council for consideration, and in some cases, the chapter’s faculty council may even interview candidates. The local NHS chapter’s faculty council deliberates the candidates’ qualifications before voting whether to invite a candidate for formal induction.

NHS inductees assume a number of obligations as a condition of their membership; along with maintaining the standards by which they were selected (failure to do so can result in discipline and/or dismissal), membership includes such responsibilities as conducting service projects for their school or community as well as individual service projects, and members attend regular meetings with the NHS’s local chapter. Inducted members enjoy a number of benefits as a result of their affiliation with the National Honor Society—including access to a number of scholarship programs.

We are pleased to announce the 2013/2014 National Honor Society inductees!
