                             Milton High School Chapter
                          Student Activity Information Form

        Congratulations on being invited to submit this packet of information for
consideration in the National Honor Society. As you may already know, the National
Honor Society is the most prestigious academic society in our country. While it is an
honor that you are being invited to submit an information packet for consideration in the
Society, please know that if selected, you will also have the obligation to be an active
member. This includes participating in our fundraising and charitable activities and
being available if needed to tutor a student from our community. While completion of
this form does not guarantee selection in the Society, your receiving it demonstrates the
high academic achievement you have attained at Milton High School.
        Please read all directions carefully and complete all sections. Do not be modest,
but please be honest. Every piece of information will be considered by the faculty during
the selection process. All information on this form must be typed or you may re-create
the form on your own word-processing system if you wish. Please use care if re-creating
this format on your own system. Leave nothing out. Any proofreading or typographical
errors could seriously compromise your candidacy. Please make six copies of the
completed packet, including the letter described below. Please make the copies after you
have had your coaches and club advisors initialed the original form. All materials you
submit must be neat and professional and hand delivered to Mr. Cooper in room 107
no later than Wednesday, March 19, 2008, at 2:30.
        In addition, for all activities in which you participated during high school,
including clubs, teams, musical groups, etc. you must get the advisors or coaches to
sign off that you were an active participant in those activities. If that person is no
longer on the staff, please have the present advisor or coach sign off instead. Any
community service hours that you submit must be registered with the Guidance office
and your guidance counselor must sign off for those hours. No community service
hours will be taken into consideration unless Guidance has approved them. As
noted in the Student Handbook, a minimum of one-hundred hours of community service
is required for selection into the Society. In addition, present and past teachers will be
welcomed to offer input as to the strength of your character and leadership.
        Finally, you must also write a letter, no longer than one page, double spaced in a
standard 12 point font, with one inch margins, in which you go into greater depth
regarding your activities and accomplishments and express how these experiences have
impacted on your life. This should also help the faculty to assess the outstanding nature
of your character. You must have your parent or guardian sign as to the truth and
accuracy of your information and letter.
        If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please feel free to leave a note
in Mr. Cooper’s mailbox in the main office or come to his office, room 107.
