National Honor Society: Advisor: Mrs. Miller-

National Honor Society is more than just an honor roll. Each Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership that are based upon a student’s outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.

Students will be selected for the National Honor Society based upon the following criteria:

Scholarship: Sophomore, junior, and senior students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 (on a 4.0 scale) meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character. The grade point average will be determined by procedures used by the Northmor guidance department.

Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.

Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, and dependable persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

Character: Students need to reflect the principles associated with the National Honor Society. Students of good character uphold principles of morality and ethics, are cooperative, demonstrate high standards of honesty and reliability, show courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintain a good clean lifestyle.

Selection Procedure:
The guidance department will make available to the Faculty Council the grade point average of all eligible students.

Students meeting the scholarship requirement will be notified and asked to fill out a National Honor Society Candidate Form, giving them the opportunity to show how they meet the standards of character, leadership, and service.

High school faculty members will also be given a list of eligible candidates to consider in the areas of character, leadership, and service.
When all candidate forms and faculty review forms are returned, the Faculty Council will then meet to evaluate and select the candidates for induction into the National Honor Society. Selection will be by a majority vote of the five-member Faculty Council.

Operation Caring Hearts: Operation Caring Hearts is an organization, created in 2001 that supports the United States Armed Forces through a variety of projects and a card campaign. Projects to date have included
Over 4,500 cards made (in study halls and JOG classes) and sent around the world to military personnel, Christmas packages, Christmas stockings for the Sandusky Nursing--supported by students and staff and Support bracelets. We have also had the good fortune to hear back from some of the service personnel who have received our cards. They tell us that our support means a great deal to them and to keep the letters and cards coming. A Northmor grad, who is proudly serving in the military, told us that some of his buddies overseas have received our cards. WE DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!! All are welcome to participate!!! Cards and markers are available in Miss Wertz's room (room 118). Please feel free to email us with any addresses of service personnel—especially Northmor graduates. Cash donations are always welcome to help defray the cost of supplies and shipping. You can make a difference in a troop's day with a single card or letter and show them your support for all their efforts on our behalf. Advisor: Miss Wertz
