National Honor Society of the Davies Chapter Selection Procedure Description 2021
The National Honor Society chapter of William M. Davies, Jr. Career and Technical 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, service, leadership, and character. Students are selected for membership by majority vote of a five-member principal-appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school each May.
Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better on a 4.0 scale. Each fall, those students who meet this criterion are invited to complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.
There are requirements that each candidate must fulfill as part of their candidate information form. You must participate in at least two student activity and/or organizations and complete 12.5 hours of documented individual community service hours as well as 12.5 hours of group service hours each year for a total of 25 hours.
To evaluate a candidate’s character, the faculty council uses three 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. Third, one faculty, from a core academic subject, and one outside/non-core faculty recommendation is required.
Any solicited faculty input, recommendations, and all Candidate Forms are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection. The recommended candidates for membership list is then sent for review by the director. Candidates are notified regarding selection or non-selection according to a predetermined schedule.
Following notification, 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.
