Selection Process for Norris' National Honor Society
The purpose of National Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. 

  1. Any junior or senior with a grade point average of 3.50 or above and who has attended Norris continually for a school calendar year is eligible to attend a informational meeting,  after first semester grades are reported, about the goals of National Honor society and to receive the Student Activity Information Form to be filled out by the candidate before a time specified by the NHS sponsor.
  2. After the Activity Form (which is supplied by national) is submitted to the National Honor Society sponsor, the names of the candidates are submitted to the faculty on the Teacher Evaluation Form.  Teachers are to evaluate only candidates they know well enough to make an informed judgment about.
  3. Candidates are evaluated on the other three areas NHS considers important for members to possess.  These areas are character, service and leadership.
  • Examples of character are: exemplifies desirable qualities, upholds principles of ethics and morality, demonstrates the highest standards of honesty and reliability
  • Examples of service are: does committee and staff work without complaint, participates in some activity outside of school, cheerfully renders any requested service to the school
  • Examples of leadership are: demonstrates initiative in promoting school activities, exercises positive influence on peers in upholding school ideals successfully holds school offices or positions of responsibility; conducts business effectively; demonstrates reliability and dependability, and is willing to uphold scholarship and maintain a loyal school attitude.
  1. After the faculty fills out the Faculty Evaluation Form, the points are tallied.
  2. Then, the Faculty Council reviews the Student Activity Form and the Teacher Evaluation Form. The teacher evaluation forms are used as input to help the Faculty Council in the decision making process.  Any teacher ranking a student below three is required to include a comment on the form indicating the reason for the less than satisfactory ranking. All Faculty Evaluation Forms are used in confidence during the selection process. In addition, the Faculty Council is allowed access to all administrative disciplinary files during deliberations.
  3.  The Faculty Council votes on the candidates and extended invitations for membership. The candidate is selected by majority vote.
  4. Candidates are formally installed at the Norris Honors Convocation. Wednesday May 15, 2019 at 1 p.m.
