El Dorado News-Times - - In Our Schools - By Syd­ney Mor­gan Hi-Gusher staff

The an­nual Na­tional Honor So­ci­ety (NHS) in­duc­tion is com­ing up soon and it’s been rais­ing ques­tions in the stu­dent body on what it takes to be­come a mem­ber of NHS.

In or­der to be­come a mem­ber of NHS, the stu­dent must have at least a cu­mu­la­tive 3.5 grade point av­er­age to be se­lected to join dur­ing their sopho­more year. The stu­dents in­duc­tion is solely based on their GPA. NHS spon­sor Kather­ine Mobbs gets the stu­dent grades from the guid­ance of­fice, then gives the in­for­ma­tion to the stu­dents.

Ac­cord­ing to Mobbs, “NHS is a pro­gram to en­cour­age en­thu­si­asm for ed­u­ca­tion and for schol­ar­ships, to stim­u­late a de­sire to ren­der ser­vice, to pro­mote lead­er­ship and to de­velop char­ac­ter in the stu­dents of sec­ondary schools.”

She con­tin­ued, “Aca­demic achieve­ment and ser­vice to the com­mu­nity is im­por­tant to me. When the pre­vi­ous club spon­sor left, I vol­un­teered to fill the , role.”

Stu­dents will be in­ducted at 6:30 p.m., on April 24 in the EHS au­di­to­rium.
