11 students at Springfield High School to be inducted into National Honor Society

Springfield High School’s annual induction ceremony for the National Honor Society will be on Wednesday May 16th at 8 a.m. in the Springfield High School Auditorium. A total of eleven students will be inducted into the school’s chapter.

To be eligible for membership consideration, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.20. Additionally, candidates must meet high standards of service, leadership, and character.

Leadership is based on the student’s participation in two or more community or school activities, or election to an office. To meet the service requirement, the student must have been active in three or more service projects in the school and community. Character is measured in terms of integrity, behavior, ethics, and cooperation with both students and faculty.

Students are reviewed by a faculty council consisting of five members of the faculty appointed by the principal.

As members of NHS, these students will now engage in a number of individual and chapter service projects. Throughout the year, these service projects help contribute to the positive climate of the school and community.

Each year, the National Honor Society also selects a local charity to donate funds they have raised throughout the year. Past charities have included Pur Water for the World, Hunger Free Vermont, and the Brattleboro Retreat.

NHS is the nation’s oldest and best-known student recognition program and was founded in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

  2. Kudos! As was the case with Anonymous 11:43, I too was one of the Honor Society inductees at SHS back in the 70s (when dinosaurs roamed the earth). Glad to see the tradition lives on and that the young people in Springfield still live up to the high standards of the Honor Society. Good for them!!!
