Bishop McCort's Class of '18 Also Has Over 40% NHS Membership

Back in June I posted about how my high school Alma Mater Bishop McCort had over 46% of its senior class in the National Honor Society (NHS) in its 2017 graduating class.  McCort, in it's alumni news letter, just published the list of the 2018 graduating class with NHS membership and the college that they would be attending.  I thought I would take a look the numbers for the 2018 class.

In the graph above shows that the percentage of seniors in the NHS was down slightly at 42.6% though still well above the years 2016 and 1985-1988.  The classes from the 80's (when I was there) had more students.  The years 2017-2018 also had a larger number of students (40) in the NHS than the other years considered.  Eyeballing the colleges that the class of 2018 are attending shows that most are attending local colleges and universities. There were no students going to an Ivy League school.  One student is attending Bucknell University who was not in the NHS.  I will look at that in my next post.

As previously stated the criterion for membership is more stringent now than it was in the 80's with a cumulative 96% grade average needed for membership.  When I was there a 3.3 grade point average was needed.  My Class just had it's 30th reunion.  I couldn't be there but the 35th will be here before I know it.  As far as I know most of them are fine whether they were in the NHS or not.
