Nov. 8, 2016 – Jackson, WI – Students at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School are celebrating the induction of eight seniors and 48 juniors were into the National Honor Society.
The NHS is a nationwide organization that recognizes students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of academics, service, leadership, and character.
These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. Over one million students are estimated to participate in NHS.
Following Constitution, the NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. This membership not only acknowledge students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. The organization has gained its national recognition, so membership in the NHS can be an advantage to the student on college applications as well as scholarship competition.
In order to be considered for induction into NHS at KML a student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.3, after his or her sophomore or junior year. A faculty council reviews other required qualifications and votes using a 100 point scale. In order to be accepted into the NHS, a student must receive an average 85 points from the members of the council.
Kettle’s NHS officer, senior Megan Weber said, “The NHS members have already proven that he or she is able to achieve with academic endeavors, leadership, character, and service that demonstrates he or she is willing to use talents for the improvement of school and community.”
Mr. Jay Shambeau Administrator for the City of West Bend participated in the service as a guest speaker.
The National Honor Society meets regularly during the school year. As any service activities may come up during the course of the school year, members will be expected that each member will be involved in at least five service projects during the year.
