The selection of members for the National
Honor Society is made by the Faculty mem-
bers of the high school. This is a rather
difficult task and some serious consider-
ation is given to the qualifications of
those students who are scholastically eli-
gible for the honor to become members of
this society. To be chosen for election
to the society a student must rank in the
upper fifteen per cent of his class scho-
lastically. The student must also be out-
standing in the qualities of Leadership,
Character, and Service. The emblem of the
society is the keystone and the flaming
torch. The aim of the society is to hold
before the school such motives as shall
induce others to aspire to scholarly habits,
enlisting in worthy service and leading
forward in all things that shall advance
the welfare of the school.
The Student Council is an organization elected
by the student body that is to represent the
student body in all affairs. If someone has a
problem, wants a party, or has some complaint
they take it to the Student Council. To raise
funds for various projects ve sell candY at
noon and refreshments at athletic contests. L.
