New NHS Class of Spring 2015

A group of sophomores, juniors, and seniors achieved National Honor Society membership at Liberty Christian’s spring induction on Feb. 17.

“We are so happy for all of the students inducted into NHS this spring,” said sponsors Toni King and Ruthie Quam. “These students exemplify the qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Selection into NHS is a privilege and an honor of which they will all be proud.”

Congratulations to the following students:

Sophomores: Michael Becker, Brayden Dragoo, Grace Duininck, Sydney Duininck, Allison Edson, Addisyn Goodson, Natalie Grigg, Logan Haire, Henry Harshfield, Kelsey Hovanetz, Tyler Hunt, Riley Kelton, Reagan Liddell, Kailey Maclin, Gracie Meek, Clayton Odom, Elizabeth Paulos, Cole Porter, Matt Ramirez, Shannon Russell, Matthew Sheng, Alex Slack, and Kylie Trost

Juniors: Raegan Cole, Madeleine McMillan, Grant Quinn, and Linda Wang

Seniors: Joanna Hwang and John Paul Kosub

These students qualified for NHS based on their GPA, but to be considered for membership, they each provided information reviewed by Liberty’s Faculty Council to support their candidacy for membership.

Members must maintain a minimum 90 GPA to remain in good standing. NHS members must earn 100 NHS service points per semester to earn the privilege of wearing honor cords and the NHS stole at graduation.

In addition to scholarship, students must exhibit biblical leadership to be considered for membership, which means bold commitment and humble servanthood.

A student who exercises this leadership does the following:

  • Demonstrates initiative by being involved in and promoting Liberty activities;
  • Exercises self-discipline in maintaining a positive attitude and influence on peers in upholding the standards of Liberty;
  • Contributes time, energy, and ideas that improve the overall life at Liberty;
  • Exemplifies leadership by his or her involvement in activities that build up the life of the school, such as Student Government, athletic teams, chapel, SADD, Key Club, etc.;
  • Successfully upholds positions of responsibility in the activities in which he or she participates, whether in or out of school, and demonstrates reliability and dependability in those positions;
  • Accepts responsibility within the school setting and carries out attending duties.

NHS members must also be involved in community service and keep their service hours up-to-date.

Examples of service include the following:

  • Willingness to represent the school in interscholastic competition;
  • Participating in activities outside of school, such as church groups, volunteer services for the elderly or disadvantaged, and mission trips;
  • Mentoring or tutoring other students or persons in the community;
  • Assisting visitors, teachers, and other students in a courteous manner.

Students in NHS must also have character traits of respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, and citizenship. Demonstrating the Fruit of the Spirit named in Galatians 5:22–23 are also very important, and these qualities include love, joy, peach, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Some of the specific considerations regarding character are listed below:

  • Takes criticism willingly and accepts recommendations graciously;
  • Is consistently cheerful, friendly, poised, and stable;
  • Is not given to complaining, but encouraging;
  • Upholds principles of morality and ethics;
  • Complies with school rules without complaint;
  • Is honest and reliable;
  • Demonstrates patience;
  • Demonstrates kindness;
  • Demonstrates humility;
  • Demonstrates courtesy;
  • Demonstrates respect for peers and authority;
  • Observes instructions and rules, is punctual, faithful both inside and outside the classroom;
  • Consistently works hard, concentrates, disciplines self, studies.

Congratulations again to the Spring 2015 inductees of Liberty Christian’s National Honor Society.
