The Willie Brown Honor Society chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those scholars who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, responsibility, service, and leadership. Scholars are selected for membership by majority vote of a principal appointed faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified scholars on behalf of the faculty of our school.
Scholars in grade four are eligible for membership. For the scholarship and responsibility criterion, a scholar must have attended the full spring semester of 3rd grade at Willie Brown and on their final report card from 3rd grade earned a cumulative grade average of at least 96%, maintained an Excellent in conduct for Homeroom, and maintained a Satisfactory in all CAMP classes. Each year those scholars who meet this criterion from the previous school year are invited to complete the Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.
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 criteria that led to their selection. If a scholar fails to keep up the minimum criteria that led to their selection throughout the school year, they will be placed on probation from NEHS and given time to rectify the area in which they need improvement.
