The candle in the middle represents the eternal light of knowledge that NHS members must pass on, casting a light that envelopes the remaining four.

Honoring service, leadership, scholarship and character
To be considered for the National Honor Society, students must have an unweighted average of 90.00. This alone is an honorable achievement, but not enough to gain entry, explains Steven Zoeller, the advisor for the National Honor Society at John Jay High School. The National Honor Society is a service organization; each student must show a history of community service since freshman year and have been involved with two organizations during their junior year. Finally, each inductee has been selected for a leadership role in an extra-curricular community service activity.
“The students really show their character, passion and dedication through their service to the community while juggling commitments to clubs and sports,” said Zoeller. “How they do all this and maintain a 90+ average is amazing!”
