4.   Scholarship
 
   Started in 1921, the National Honor Society has recognized upperclassmen across the United States for their outstanding performances in leadership, service, scholarship, and character. Once inducted, members are expected to maintain these standards. Membership in National Honor Society is both an honor and a commitment.
   
   To be eligible to become an inductee at Maplewood, one must be a junior or senior and have maintained a 3.2 cumulative grade point average.
In addition, these students are asked to complete a questionnaire detailing their accomplishments in leadership and service. Next, each member of the Maplewood faculty evaluates those eligible. Finally, after reviewing the questionnaires and teacher evaluations, a five member council, appointed by Mr. Hitchcock, selects the inductees.
 
   Once inducted, NHS students are required to be involved in a variety of service projects for their school and community. At Maplewood, each student fulfills a minimum of 10 hours of volunteers service. We usually help the Academics Boosters by serving at their spaghetti dinner. Students tutor other students, help wrap gifts at the mall for the Salvation Army, work at the Elementary school carnival, and at the Athletic Boosters Elementary basketball tournament. In the past we've raised money for the Red Cross, donated money for dinners at the rescue mission, pulled weeds and planted flowers at the school, and sponsored "Let's Make A Difference Day" with a "Support our Troops" collection. We participated in the "Fairy Godmother" program; we collected prom and homecoming dresses for the girls to receiver free of charge. Last year we collected money for a local veteran, and also collected supplies for Trumbull County domestic violence center "Someplace Safe".
