The National Honor Society is an organization that recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, leadership, service, and character. It is an honor for any candidate to be considered and selected. Responsibilities are most visible by the service projects performed by the National Honor Society members. Other responsibilities not so clearly visible are the varying and diverse forms of individual service projects; continued academic success; and the continued presence of positive leadership and character as exhibited by each member.

In order to be considered for selection, candidates must have a cumulative GPA of 85/ B average. The selection process occurs in the spring of junior year and candidates will be judged in all four areas.

  • Scholarship
    Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence.
  • Service
    This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
  • Leadership
    Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
  • Character
    The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.

Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, and character.

Incoming Three Rivers Middle College students should aspire to the National Honor Society as they consider their academic and personal goals. As soon as students enter our high school the record of their academic and personal achievements begin. During junior and senior years, candidates are asked to reflect on their previous high school experiences prior to being selected.

*Students inducted in their previous high school may transfer their membership to the TRMC NHS Chapter (This does not apply to members of NJHS.)
