    Students may not apply for membership.  This is an honor bestowed upon a select group of students by the school faculty.  Only those students who have attended W.F. George Middle School the equivalent of one semester may be considered for membership. Students must also meet the following criteria as observed by faculty counsel:
     
    1. Scholarship—a commitment to learning and is evaluated through his /her grades.  Each member is responsible for returning grade checks, signed by his or her teachers, at each six-week period to maintain membership.  
     
    2. Service—the willingness to work without monetary compensation or without recognition for the benefit of others in need.  The service area is evaluated by teacher survey and recommendations.
     
    3. Leadership—demonstrating the initiative in school activities.  The real leader strives to train and aid others to attain the same positive objectives.  The price of leadership is sacrifice—the willingness to yield one’s own personal interest for the interests of others.  The area of leadership is evaluated by teacher recommendations and student portfolio.  
     
    4. Character—the force within each individual, which distinguishes that person from others.  We must be in reality what we wish to appear to others, by demonstrating such qualities as reliability, honesty, and sincerity.  The area of character is evaluated by discipline history and teacher recommendations.
     
    5. Citizenship—the willingness of each person to participate responsibly in the affairs that govern our school, city, and country.  The area of citizenship may be evaluated by teacher evaluation form and student portfolio.
     
    A committee consisting of the sponsor, principal, assistant principal, and counselor will review and approve all induction candidates.   Members should understand fully that they are subject to dismissal if they do not maintain the standards outlined above.  In the case of a flagrant violation of school rules or civil laws, a warning is not required for dismissal.  A faculty council hearing will be held and due process followed.  A modest induction ceremony will be held in the spring of the induction year or early fall.  Inductions are by invitation only.
