National Honor Society

All students of Felt High School who are sophomores, juniors, or seniors and have a GPA of 3.3 or higher at the end of the third nine weeks are eligible for candidacy for membership in the National Honor Society (NHS).  Selection to NHS is a privilege, not a right.  NHS is more than just an honor roll as leadership, service and character are equally important.  Students do not apply for membership; instead, they provide information to be used by the Faculty Council who grants membership to worthy candidates.

Qualified students will be given the opportunity to complete the Student Activity Information Form in the fourth nine weeks of the school year.  From this, the Faculty Advisor Council will choose those candidates who meet all the qualifications for induction into the Felt chapter of the National Honor Society.  Students and parents will receive written notification of their acceptance, and a ceremony will be held at the school to induct the new members.   Be aware that members who at any time fail to meet the qualifications will be dismissed from the society.  Members who are dismissed or who resign will not be considered for membership again. 

Being a member of the National Honor Society is a commitment to continued excellence on the part of each member.  Those accepted as members should consider this one of the highest achievements of their high school years.   Their membership will be beneficial as applications are made for college acceptance as well as employment.  Each student is encouraged to aspire to meet the qualifications to be accepted into the prestigious society.
