Webb’s Upper School Celebrates Newest Members of National Honor Society

Webb’s Upper School recently hosted a special Chapel ceremony to celebrates its newest members of Webb’s chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS).

Since 1921, the NHS has used scholarship, service, character, and leadership as criteria for membership selection into its local chapters. Seniors and juniors who have been in attendance at Webb School for one full academic year, have earned a cumulative G.P.A. of 4.25 and have been active in service activities are eligible for induction into Webb’s chapter of the National Honor Society.

This year’s inductees earned National Honor Society membership based on their academic performance through the completion of their sophomore or junior years in Webb’s Upper School.

A faculty council participates in the selection of members by evaluating each eligible student on the bases of academics, character and leadership. National Honor Society members are expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community.
