The Florida Wing Cadet Honor Society was created in 1998 as part of the vision of then Chief of Staff, Lt Col Matthew Sharkey (Later Florida Wing, then Southeast Region Commander). It is a program designed to recognize cadets who have excelled in CAP academics and achievement.
The purpose of this Honor Society is to help cadets gain academic recognition and credit for educational and scholarship purposes. It is a great achievement to be recorded on high school or college resumes, and squadrons are highly encouraged to promote this in their cadet programs.

Criteria for Induction
Score a 90% or above per achievement or milestone, which will be the average of both Aerospace and Leadership tests for Achievements 2 through 7. Note that Achievement 1 and milestone tests will stand by themselves and only the leadership tests will be used for achievements 8 through 16. Aerospace Education tests for Achievements 8-16 are open book and will not be counted.
Maintain this average over a consecutive three-achievement/milestone span, with no time frame.
The score will be calculated based on the first passing score of the test.
The cadet will be a member in good standing.
Cadets that earn this honor, will be eligible to wear a blue/yellow shoulder cord when certification has been completed by wing cadet programs.
******IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SUCCESSFUL INDUCTION******
- The application MUST be clear and legible. It is highly suggested that you use the form fill feature to type in form information. If you decide to hand fill the form, you MUST use BLOCK-STYLE LETTERS. Failure to do so will result in the application returned.
- Ensure that you are using the correct, most current application. Obsolete applications will be returned.
- Commanders may use proper digital signatures when completing the .pdf version of the application.
- Black Ink ONLY will be used, including signatures. The use of any other ink color or pencil will NOT be accepted.
These standards should be practiced not only with the CHS Induction application, but with all forms. As a cadet programs leader or cadet, you need to ensure that your discipline in such matters is contagious. Leadership by example is not a request, it happens whether you want it to or not. Where are you leading those that look up to you?
