Overview

Selection to NHS is a privilege, not a right.  Students do not apply for membership in the National Honor Society.  Instead, they provide information to be used by the local selection committee to support their candidacy for membership.  Membership is granted only to those students selected by the Faculty Council in each school on the condition of their having met the standards for selection established at the local level and based on the provisions of the national constitution.  This is not an election, nor is membership automatically conveyed simply because a student has achieved a specified level of academic performance.
