Honor Council Nominations

 The student-led Honor Council is essential to the proper functioning of our honor system and the strength of our school community. In order to create an Honor Council that is representative of and has the support of the student body, the process for selecting candidates relies on nominations from the members of the class.

On Monday, April 27, you will receive an emailed Honor Council nomination ballot for your class. Select up to 6 people who you believe possess honor, morality, and integrity, and who have the strength of character to uphold the honor code and act as role models, even in difficult circumstances.

Nominations will close at 4:00pm on Wednesday, April 29.

The election of the members of the Judiciary Board will take place next Monday, May 4.
