Benton High School Chapter - National Honor Society

The National Honor Society chapter of Benton High School is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Standards for selection are established by the national office of NHS and have been revised to meet our local chapter needs. Students are selected to be members by a Faculty Council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school. Students in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student’s GPA is reviewed. Those students who meet the GPA criterion established by the Faculty Council are invited to complete a Student Activity Information Form that provides the Faculty Council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service. A history of leadership experiences and participation in school or community service is also required. To evaluate a candidate’s character, the Faculty Council uses two forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, members of the faculty are solicited for input regarding their professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership. These forms and the Student Activity Information Forms are carefully reviewed by the Faculty Council to determine membership. A majority vote of the Council is necessary for selection. A formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly selected members. Once inducted, new members are required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all four criteria that led to their selection. Students or parents who have questions regarding the selection process or membership obligations can contact the chapter adviser. This same process is conducted consistently each year.
