A five-member Faculty Council, comprised of Creative Writing Chair Kim Henderson, Humanities faculty Karin Obermeier, Associate Dean of the Arts & Theatre faculty Bonnie Carpenter, ESL faculty Jeni Kets and Resource Center faculty Margaret Gray made the selections.

To be eligible for induction in the National Honor Society, students must have met the following criteria:

  • Students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades at Idyllwild Arts are eligible.
  • Cumulative Idyllwild Arts GPA of 3.80 or better.
  • History of leadership experience is required, and can consist of: 1) appointment or election to leadership positions; 2) other positions of responsibility; and 3) and other situations requiring the direction and motivation of others.
  • Record of school or community service is also required – involved in a campus organization for at least a half hour every week,
  • Total hours of community service provided will be 30 per year – school or their own community
  • To evaluate a candidate’s character, the Faculty Council uses two forms of input – school disciplinary records are reviewed and students solicit members of the faculty for input.

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Idyllwild Arts is part of this elite group of schools that offers this program to outstanding students. “NHS students exemplify the best of what Idyllwild Arts has to offer – achievement, leadership and commitment to community.  These students have proven themselves in the classrooms, studios, IAA community and beyond”, concludes Bonnie Carpenter, faculty council member.

Congratulations to these very deserving students!
