The National Honor Society is not
only an active service club of Alton lligh
School, but also represents a high goal
attained by only a few. Although grades
are one main factor in selecting members.
service about school. character, and leader-
ship are other important principles con-
sidered by the faculty members. To be-
come eligible a student must have a grad:
average of 90 or above. and no grade of
any course. A grade of "D" eli-
tninates membership until one is a 4-Z.
Only fue percent of the 3-2 class, ten
percent of the 4-I class, and fifteen per-
cent of the fl-Z class are selected each sem-
ester. Assistants for the ntain office,
Deanls offices, and the clinic are chosen
from honor students and consequently one
was a chance to render service to his
school by holding one of these offices.
