There are two kinds of membership: CHAPTER vs. NATIONAL
Chapter Members are those who attend East Carter High School and have an interest in the French language and culture. These members do not have to be in a French class nor pay dues to join and can participate in any event sponsored by the society! Chapter Members, however, cannot hold offices and are not official members of the organization at the national level.
National Members have to meet the following requirements:
-Currently be enrolled in the second semester of French 2
-Maintain an A average in both French 1 & 2 as well as a B average in all other coursework at ECHS
To be a member of the National French Honor Society, you must meet the requirements mentioned above and then you must be initiated during a Formal Initiation Ceremony. To be a Chapter Member, all you have to do is participate in chapter activities at no cost!
The Dues of the National French Honor Society are $10.00 (Chapter members do not have to pay this!). This covers the cost of the certificate and official pin given to all newly-initiated national members.
For more information about becoming a national member, see Mr. Hawkins in Room 216.
