Overview

Students who achieve lifetime membership (by meeting guidelines set forth by the governing body) by their senior year will be allowed to wear either a cord or a stole during graduation to display this accomplishment.  All 10th, 11th, and 12th graders are eligible to apply for membership at the beginning of a semester. 9th graders may apply for auxiliary membership during the second semester. Monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month in the theatre. If a student is unable to attend this meeting, they may attend a makeup meeting on the first Friday of the month in Ms. Jax's room (505).

Members may apply at the beginning of each semester. (Students are required to submit a new application at the beginning of each semester to re-apply) Applications are based on a grade point scale (for more information see the application in the locker).
