2. Membership in this chapter is an honor bestowed upon deserving students by the faculty, and shall be based on the criteria of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character.

3. Eligibility:
a. Candidates eligible for selection to this chapter must be members of the junior or senior class.
b. To be eligible for selection to membership in this chapter, the candidate must have been in attendance for a period of one semester at Morenci High School.
c. Morenci High School National Honor Society standards are higher than the National NHS standards and have been since the early years Morenci High School began (1940s). The National Honor Society is reserved for students that challenge themselves academically. Morenci High School uses a GPA of 3.50 and above, as well as quality points as criteria to induct members into National Honor Society.

Target: Students must receive an 85% or better in all of their classes from 9th grade and above to ensure their eligibility in National Honor Society. Quality points are awarded by multiplying the percentage a student receives in a class by the amount of quality points the class is worth. Regular classes are worth 1 quality point, while higher level classes are worth 1.25 quality points. During their 11th grade year, students have an opportunity to acquire 2 classes (or more if they take courses from Eastern Arizona College) worth 1.25 quality points, those being Chemistry and Algebra II. During their 12th grade year, students have an opportunity to acquire 3 classes or more worth 1.25 quality points. They are required to take 2 years of higher level math courses (one their 11th grade year and one their 12th grade year), and can qualify and take as many courses from Eastern Arizona College as they can in their schedule.

Below is the criteria and breakdown of how students qualify for NHS:

11th Grade = 3.5 GPA and 2592.50 Quality Points

12th Grade = 3.5 GPA and 3718.75 Quality Points

9th grade: 6 classes weighted at 1.0 per class receiving an 85% or better in each class: 1020 quality points/school year and a GPA of 3.5 or better

10th grade: 6 classes weighted at 1.0 per class receiving an 85% or better in each class: 1020 quality points/school year
