LOCKNEY – Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is based on a student’s fulfillment of four basic requirements. Students who meet the minimum GPA requirement of 94% are eligible to be nominated during their junior year.
The five basic requirements for membership are scholarship, character, leadership and service.
Scholarship – Juniors eligible for consideration for membership in the NHS must have a 94% GPA.
Character – Teachers, coaches and advisors will make assessments regarding character. Potential NHS members must possess distinctive qualities.
Integrity and Ethics – An uncompromising adherence to a code of honesty and sincerity and cooperation – a willingness to work in contact with students and faculty toward a common goal which enhances the school community.
Leadership – Students eligible for membership must demonstrate effective leadership. This is accomplished not only as an elected official in school, but maybe a chairperson or member of a committee, clubs, organizations or even athletics, but also in the classroom by exhibiting intellectual curiosity, demonstrating positive behavior and attitude, and accepting responsibility. And last but not least is Service.
Service – Where a student must have been involved in a high school non-scholastic, service type activity such as sports or student government that lasted two consecutive years. A student must also be involved in a second non-scholastic community or high school service lasting one year in duration.
These six LHS students also had to complete an application and document their service and activity hours.
Kalebh Cook, Hunter Lefevre, RyAnn Castillo, Jessica Hernandez, Audrey Rexrode and Dylan Morgan are the 2020 Lockney NHS new inductees.
