National Honor Society Criteria

 

The Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.  These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.

Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85 percent are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.

Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.

Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle. A candidate must have no recorded incidents of cheating or intentional dishonesty. Disciplinary records such as those for cutting classes or of knowingly violating school regulations are considered during the application process. Instead, a candidate must be willing to assist classmates and staff, as well as to support ethical, acceptable behavior in all situations.

The Board of Education granted tenure to eight faculty members on June 6. These individuals were recognized at a reception during which administrators described how each of them had proven that they were making a difference in the Locust Valley Central District. 

Each tenure recipient spent years proving that they are worthy of becoming a permanent part of the LVCSD family. Their supervisors observed their professional practices over the years, ensuring that they performed their jobs in a manner that was considered superior. Their skills, relationships with others and willingness to learn were all factors that were considered when reviewing each candidate for their tenure appointment.

Acting Superintendent Dr. Carl Bonuso congratulated the honorees on this important milestone in their careers.

Congratulations to Jamie Cherkis, Locust Valley Middle School/High School Mathematics Teacher; Kimberly Derenthal, Ann MacArthur Primary School Teacher; Jaime DiRossi, Locust Valley Middle School/High School Science Teacher; Kristin Hordy, Locust Valley Elementary Schools Physical Education Teacher; Brian Kollar, Locust Valley Middle School Science Teacher; Toni Meliambro, Locust Valley Central School District Assistant Superintendent for Business Affairs and Human Resources; Alexander Moir, Locust Valley High School Foreign Language Teacher; and Michelle Villa, Locust Valley High School Assistant Principal.
