He just keeps amazing us...

When our son came home from school and told us that he was chosen to be in the National Honor Society, we were really proud. The NHS isnt just about having a High GPA it involves other things such as Character, Citizenship, Service, and Leadership.

We are really proud that he works so hard. Currenlty his GPA is 4.2
Congrats Scott!

This is from their site below:
Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85 percent, B, 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent standard of excellence, or a higher cumulative average set by the local school's Faculty Council, meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character (and citizenship for NJHS).

This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.

The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic involvement, has a high regard for freedom, justice, and democracy, and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility through involvement with such activities as scouting, community organizations, and school clubs.

Specific standards for these criteria may vary from one school to the next. Such variations are acceptable as long as they do not fall below the national standards set by the National Council of the NHS and NJHS.

And just this morning at Sheppard Air Force Base, Scott entered a Bench Press compeition. He competed against soldiers, adult men in their 20s, 30s and he won a GOLD MEDAL! He bench pressed 325 lbs and almost got 350 lbs taking first place.

As he says "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me."

Way to go!

Pin It!
