National Elementary Honor Society


Hardin NEHS

Selection Procedure Description

The National Elementary Honor Society chapter of Hardin Elementary School is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, responsibility, service, and leadership. Students are selected for membership by majority vote of a principal-appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school each twelve months.

Students in grades 4 and 5 are eligible for membership.  For the scholarship criterion, a student must have all As.  Those students who meet this criterion and pass disciplinary review are invited to complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.   

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 non-selection 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 four criteria that led to their selection.
