NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Don McArthur-Self DMCARTHUR@MAINE207.ORG
A national honors organization for secondary school students. The Maine South chapter of the National Honor Society is chartered by the national organization and is governed by the national's rules and its own chapter bylaws. Students with junior or senior standing who hold a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.5 or higher at the end of the first semester of junior year will be invited to submit additional information for the Faculty to consider. Invitation for membership is based on four criteria: Character, Scholarship, Leadership and Service. Membership invitations are sent after the application deadlines by a Faculty Advisory Council based on examination of transcripts, student-submitted materials, and other relevant school records. NHS members are inducted in March of each year and are expected to maintain high levels of academic achievement, school and community leadership and volunteer service, including a minimum of twelve hours of service every six months. The Maine South National Honor Society seeks to coordinate at least one service project each semester and members are also expected to volunteer as tutors for other students when their schedule permits during the school day.
Membership and application information, and forms and information for prospective applicants AND current members, are located there.
