Honor + Recognition: NHS 1976

The National Honor Society recognized students who displayed outstanding achievement in the areas of character, leadership, service, and scholarship. The election process, which occurred in the spring, allowed the faculty to rate eligible juniors and seniors who had been in their class or sponsored activity. A 3.0 grade point average or better constituted the criterion for NHS consideration, however, selection was determined by personal qualities as well as scholastic performance.

The newly elected National Honor Society candidates were initiated into the organization at Honors and Awards night. The current members presented an impressive candlelighting ceremony, expounding upon the character components of a NHS student.

Under the guidance of Mrs. Barbara Vogt, faculty advisor, and the four society officers, the group expanded their responsibilities. Although designated primarily as an honorary position, NHS sought to become actively involved in SM East projects. Recognition attained by election to the National Honor Society encouraged citizenship and personal achievement.
