National Junior Honor Society About Us
The Terry Fischvogt Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society at South Ripley was formed in 2005. It is open to 8th graders and second semester 7th graders who meet the guidelines for scholarship and character as outlined by the Faculty Council. The grade point average required for admission is 3.5.
Any student who meets the 3.5 grade point average requirement will be given a letter of invitation to apply unless they have received an out of school suspension. Upon receiving a letter of invitation, they are then required to submit a typed resume and a letter of recommendation to the advisory council if they wish to be a member. The advisory council will then determine which students will be admitted to the National Junior Honor Society based on the resume, letter of recommendation, and observations made by the members of the committee.
Mrs. Evans is the advisor and will enforce the guidelines set forth by the Advisory Council. The Advisory Council is composed of Jenna Homola, Lindsay Hafft, Angela Ochs, Belinda Mockbee, and Holly Swinney.
The National Junior Honor Society serves as an opportunity for students to develop leadership skills. Also as a requirement of the club, students will be doing community service to instill a desire to be an active member of the community.
