NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Franklin High School’s William Athanas Chapter No. 7654 of the National Honor Society was established in 1979. This chapter is sanctioned by the National Association of Secondary School Principals and operated under the guidelines of the National NHS Constitution as approved for all chapters on May 2, 2008 by the NASSP Board of Directors. The National Honor Society’s objectives are “to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in all students of Franklin High School.” Membership in a local chapter is an honor bestowed upon a student.

To be eligible for membership, a student must be a member of the sophomore, junior, or senior class. Candidates must have been in attendance at the school the equivalent of one semester. Candidates must hold a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale without rounding up. All students who can rise in scholarship to or above this standard may be considered as candidates for election to membership. A student’s character, leadership, and service to school are considered equally alongside scholarship during the membership selection process. Students will receive an invitation each term that they have at least a 3.0 GPA. Seniors and juniors will receive Franklin High School Handbook 2020-2021 Students will receive invitations at the end of the fall semester. Juniors and sophomores will receive invitations after the third quarter. Member selection and chapter induction occurs following the application process. The completion of an application packet is a prerequisite for consideration. A Faculty Council comprised of no less than 5 (five) faculty members consider the applications of all candidates. Member selection and chapter induction occurs in the fall and spring.
