48 Proviso West Students Inducted Into National Honor Society

January 4, 2013 03:52 PM
Hillside, IL...Forty-eight students at Proviso West High School were recognized for their high academic achievement and leadership skills when they were inducted into the National Honor Society on November 15.

"These 48 students are the best of the best," said Dr. Roudell Kirkwood, principal at Proviso West High School. "But we know there are more (qualified) students."

At the induction ceremony which took place at Proviso West High School, the students received a certificate recognizing their achievements, a National Honor Society lapel pin, and a National Honor Society pen. They then sat down to a banquet in their honor with their parents.

Marsha Cowles, a social studies teacher at Proviso West and the school chapter’s faculty sponsor, said that to be inducted into the National Honor Society, a student needs to have at least four semesters in which they earn a grade point average of at least 3.0 of a possible 4.0. The students who meet this criterion are then contacted and invited to submit an application in which they answer questions about their leadership skills and community service as well as write an essay on why they believe they should be inducted.

A panel of five teachers, including Cowles, then reviews the application packets to determine which students will be selected for induction. Another group of students will be inducted into the National Honor Society later this spring.

"It’s grades that start the process, but it’s everything that completes the process," Cowles said, adding that induction in the National Honor Society looks good on college applications.
