in her congratulatory remarks, KES principal Dr. Ignacia T. Demapan commended the students for achieving NEHS membership. She emphasized that their membership, more than the honor, is an ongoing responsibility and obligation to continue demonstrating these outstanding qualities that resulted in their NEHS selection.
She also acknowledged the parents for providing support to their students to help them develop leadership, cultivate a love of giving back, and prepare for the next phase in their academic journey and beyond.
Demapan congratulated everyone, including the NEHS advisers, NEHS faculty council, teachers, and staff of Kagman Elementary School and thanked them for their dedication, commitment, and partnership.
To be eligible for membership consideration in the National Elementary Honor Society, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.6 or higher. Additionally, candidates must meet high standards of responsibility, service, and leadership.
Leadership is based on the student’s participation in community or school activities or election to an office. To meet the service requirement, the student must have been active in service projects in the school and community.
Students are reviewed by a faculty council appointed by the principal.
As members of NEHS, these students will now engage in a number of chapter service projects.
NEHS is modeled on its companion organization, the National Honor Society, which is the nation’s oldest and best-known student recognition program. (PR)
