As is understood, scholarship, character, leadership, and service are the four qualifications for membership into the society. Unlike some organizations, this society does not consider scholarship alone. This quality, which is emphasized by many honor societies, was felt too narrow a basis; therefore, the constitution of this national organization recognized four principle objectives. The purpose is to hold these objectives above everything else as goals toward which we should strive. In keeping them before the school we hope to induce others to seek good scholarly habits, to take part in worthy service, and to lead forward in all those things that shall advance the welfare of the school, always building up their own characters in carrying out these motives.
