11 HHS students to join National Honor Society

Hillsboro High School will induct 11 students into the Trojan Chapter of the National Honor Society on Monday, Oct. 29.

The induction is an annual candle-lit ceremony conducted at the Hillsboro Memorial Park Scout Building.

The 11 students are: senior Grant Schneider and juniors Kelsey Bartel, Ben Gottsch, Abi Humber, Cassie Kroeker, David Loewen, Nicholas Mueller, Heidi Schroeder, Clay Shewey, Jet Skiles and David Winter.

The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious organizations for high school students. Chapters exist in three-fourths of the nation?s high schools.

To be eligible for membership, students must be a junior or senior and have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.70.

Candidates are then evaluated on the standards of character, leadership and service.

Leadership qualities are based upon a student?s participation in school activities, organizations and class offices.

Service qualities are based upon a student?s involvement in voluntary community and school service projects.

Character is measured in terms of integrity, behavior, ethics, and cooperation with other students, faculty and community members.

Terry Bebermeyer is the advisor for the local chapter
