Maintain a National Honor Society Chapter at Kuemper High School
We ask the Kuemper High School administration to support and maintain a National Honor Society chapter at Kuemper now and well into the future. Its national/global recognition and merit has immeasurable benefits for our students and graduates. The honor of chapter membership acknowledges excellence of character, leadership, attention to service and academics, and is of great value as members pursue athletic recruitment, application for financial scholarships, application for leadership opportunities on college campuses, consideration for career internships, application for post graduate programs and building resumes to enter into the job market.
While the creation of a proposed in-house honor society could offer intangible benefits for students within their experience at Kuemper, it would have little, if any benefit for the graduates beyond their time at Kuemper. Because of its lack of recognition outside of Kuemper, there would be no knowledge of the society's purpose or required qualifications for membership, and therefore be of no assistance when applying for scholarships, leadership opportunities, internships, post graduate programs and creating useful resumes for entry level employment.
