Merrol Hyde Magnet

The National Honor Society Chapter establishes memberships that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built. In order to be considered for National Honor Society membership, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.9 as a Junior or 3.8 as a Senior.  Once a student meets scholastic requirements, a faculty evaluation is completed to determine if the candidate meets the requirements of leadership, service, and character.  The Faculty Council (a team of five teachers appointed by Mrs. Dorris) will review the faculty evaluations to determine which candidates are invited into membership.  An induction ceremony will take place in the Fall of each school year.  All students must complete 15 hours of community service during the school year and 8 hours during the summer.  For additional information, please contact Mrs. Elizabeth Dorris.
