ROXBURY, NJ (November 25, 2019) – Roxbury High School’s National Honor Society inducted 79 new members on November 21st to add to the 52 already existing members.
Students inducted pledged to continue to uphold the four pillars that make up the National Honor Society (NHS) which are scholarship, service, character, and leadership. A ceremony is held each year to formally induct students who have fulfilled the necessary requirements and acknowledge the many accomplishments that have allowed them to be eligible. Once members, students are required to maintain involvement as well as participate in all National Honor Society activities.
In order to fulfill the Scholarship pillar, students must either be a Junior or Senior with at least 3.75 grade point average and have a minimum of 60 credits.
Service, another pillar, also plays a strong role in being a member. The National Honor Society is highly concerned with giving its all to the school and community at large and believes service will enrich the lives of others through dedicating their own time to make a difference without compensation.
Students must meet all the criteria in the third pillar of Character. These individuals must be able to take criticism willingly, consistently exemplifies desirable qualities of behavior, upholds principals of morality and ethics, cooperates by complying with school regulations, demonstrates the highest standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, observes instructions and rules, punctuality, and faithfulness both inside and outside the classroom while actively ridding the school of bad influences.
The final pillar of Leadership looks for students who demonstrate and successfully hold leadership positions of authority in the community and must be dependable and responsible in that role.
