Boquet Valley CSD
Excelsior Chapter or the National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society chapter of Boquet Valley CSD is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in five areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Students are selected for membership by majority vote of a five-member
principal-appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school each spring.
Students in grades 7-8 are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student must have a
cumulative GPA of 85.00%. Each spring semester those students who meet this criterion are invited to
complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s
leadership, service, and citizenship.
To evaluate a candidate’s character, the faculty council uses two forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, members of the faculty are solicited for input regarding their professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, leadership, character, and citizenship.
Any solicited faculty input and all Candidate Forms are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection. Candidates are notified regarding selection or nonselection according to a predetermined schedule.
Following notification, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly
selected members. Once inducted, new members are required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all five criteria that led to their selection
