GRAFTON – Grafton High School (GHS) celebrated with the induction of 20 new members to the National Honor Society this month. The addition of the 20 inductees raises the total number of the National Honor Society at GHS to 37.

The National Honor Society originated in 1921 as the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Organization representatives estimate that over one million students participate in the National Honor Society and the National Junior Honor Society. Chapters are found in Chile, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many US Territories, and Canada.

The National Honor Society was designed to create enthusiasm for scholarships, stimulate a desire to render service, promote leadership and develop character in the students of secondary schools.

The National Council for the National Honor Society establishes the standards for every chapter. Local chapters are then to create their own bylaws from those standards, which must comply with the National Honor Society national constitution. The National Council gives any student in grades 10, 11 or 12 in a school that has both an official charter, and an up-to-date affiliation with the national office of National Honor Society, the opportunity for consideration for membership. All membership selection is handled through the local school chapter.

Records show that the local National Honor Society chapter is to establish guidelines for selection that are based upon a student’s performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Specific standards for these four criteria may vary from one school to the next. Such variations are accepted as long as they do not fall outside the parameters set by the National Council of National Honor Society.
