English Honor Society (VCEHS)

    Advisors: Ms. McKenney, Ms. Menendez

    The National English Honor Society was founded several years ago by Sigma Tau Delta at Northern Illinois University. It is the only national organization exclusively for high school students who, in the field of English, merit special note for past and current accomplishments.

    In order to be selected- the members must have achieved at least a “90” overall average in all subjects, as well as a “90” average in English for 9th and 10th grade. Students become first eligible to join in the fall of their junior year.

    This group will pledge the National English Honor Society motto which is “Duty goes with Honor.” Service to peers, school and community are part and parcel of this mission. At Valley Central, National English Honor Society members perform their school service and duty through their active membership and in participating in at least one of the following activities relating to language and literature:  The Newspaper- the Viking Voice,  The Literary Magazine -Revelation, The school Yearbook- the Viking Log, or through tutoring, working or participating at the poetry slam, helping at the book fairs or through various outreach opportunities  that we have available in our community and middle school.
