Shelby National Honor Society is a chapter of the national organization that seeks to promote scholarship, character, leadership and service in our nation’s high schools. Shelby’s members take part in a number of activities and programs each year. In the fall, members organize a silent auction as part of the Pink and Green Bowl, an organization that raises money for cancer research and treatment. In 2013, members raised over $300.00.  At the end of the first trimester of the school year, members organize a program for the entire high school that lasts for half of the school day. 2013’s program was build around the dangers and implications of bullying. In the winter, members organize a talent show to showcase the school’s musicians, dancers, actors, etc. In the spring, members participate in a blood drive and organize an appreciation dinner for the entire high school staff.

To become a member of the Shelby National Honor Society, students must demonstrate scholarship by maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 through the first two years of high school. The first step is submitting an application. Next, all teachers rate the candidates in the areas of leadership and character. From these ratings, a composite score is calculated. From there, a five-person, staff -comprised committee gathers to review the applications and the composite scores. Evaluation is conducted on each candidate and after holding sufficient deliberation, committee members vote. A candidate receiving a majority of votes attains membership in Shelby National Honor Society. Usually, around January, an induction ceremony is held to officially induct members into this very prestigious club.
