    Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Walk 2014  - SHS NHS, Girl Soccer Team & a couple Varsity Football Player  
    National Honor Society Members, along with the S.H.S. Girls Soccer team and a couple Varsity Football Payers
    raised over $700 for this year's Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis held on Saturday, September 13,  2014 in Salamanca, NY.
    Under the sponsorship and supervision of the National Association of Secondary School Principals,
    the purpose of the NHS is to:
    * Create enthusiasm for scholarship
    * Stimulate a desire to render service
    * Promote leadership
    * Develop character in its members
    To maintain membership in NHS students must keep their cumulative average above 89.5% (core subjects must be maintained at 85% or better); continue to show good character traits in and outside of school; participate in at least one group sponsored service project and at least one individual service project.
    The selection process:
    In December, juniors and seniors whose cumulative average is above 89.5% are notified that they meet the initial scholarship requirement for NHS membership.Then, each qualifying candidate is given an activity sheet to fill out with details of their extra-curricular activities, community service work, and leadership activities. Members are expected to demonstrate not only high academic standards, but also leadership, service and good character.
    The next component of the selection process is the faculty rating. All members of the faculty with knowledge of the candidates rate them on participation, responsibility, leadership capabilities, character and attitude towards their peers and teachers. Finally, a faculty selection committee reviews: the activity sheets, the faculty rating scores, the first marking period report cards, student transcripts, individual student attendance/tardiness, and determines the final selection of students to be "tapped" for membership.
    Congratulations to Salamanca High School National Honor Society 2014 Seniors: Courtney Yehl, Joe Hinman, and Haylei John !

    The Distinguished Service Award - Joe Hinman

    The Scholastic Excellence Award (highest combined SAT scores in one setting) - Haylie John
