How I BECOME A MEMBER OF N.H.S.?
Students may apply for the National Honor Society at the beginning of their junior year. Students should prepare for NHS during their 9th and 10th grade years. Preparation may include community service, leadership roles in clubs, and other activities which may be used for service/leadership. The application requires 2 leadership roles and 2 community service locations.
Beginning August 12th, 2013 interested students may check an eligibility list (posted by student number) outside of Room E052 on the wall and may then download the application from our N.H.S. website. **PLEASE NOTE: Due to budget constraints, applications and letters advising students of their eligibility are no longer sent home or to the class rooms.
*** Students must check the posted list and then download the application. The application is on the bottom of this home page! Notices will NOT BE sent home or to the classroom/student. It is the responsibility of the student to check the list for eligibility.
NO LATE OR INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Completed applications are due on or before August 30th, 2013. Please return completed applications to Mrs. Dorris' room-E052.
The minimum requirements are:
Scholarship – A minimum of a 3.6 cumulative GPA is required (or 87 weighted official rank points for juniors/129 weighted official rank points for seniors.)
Leadership – A minimum of two leadership positions within the school or community are required.
Service – A minimum of two separate activities are required. These activities may be through the school (non-credit areas--school
sanctioned ) or in the community. Verification from a sponsor (a parent/guardian may NOT SIGN off service hours) is required. These service hours MAY NOT BE FROM THE SAME LOCATIONS!
Character – A total of three (3) recommendation forms must be submitted by the student from current or previous high school level teachers. Mrs. Dorris, Mr. Nero, Mr. Bell, Mrs. Benedict, or Mr. Brown may sign off on your referral section. Please see any of them before or after school for a signature.
Students who apply may not have any referrals (other than cell phone referral) on their record.
APPLICATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP WILL BE AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD BEGINNING AUGUST 12TH, 2013 and are due August 30th 2013 by 2:30pm. Students are responsible for retrieving the information from the website. CdS will NOT print or provide paper applications to the students. Students must check the eligibility list and follow the directions from there.
Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. If a student does not have the required amount of items in a required category, the application will be reviewed by a committee. For example, a student only has ONE leadership position-we will review this information. Reviewing does NOT GUARANTEE membership.
NHS acceptance information has now (Sept. 9th, 2013) been posted on the wall outside of E052.

NHS Meetings: NHS meetings are held once a month during both lunches in Lecture Hall "B". In order to get students out to lunch quickly we ask that you arrive ASAP. The faster you arrive the faster you are out of there. Meetings are brief but contain very important information for all members. As specified above, members may only miss ONE MEETING per semester (2 total for the year). Membership will be suspended if you miss more than 2 meetings. Of course any school related activity is excused.
In addition, membership dues must be paid for all new members by the end of the first semester. Failure to pay dues will result in membership being suspended. Juniors will need to reapply next year as seniors. Seniors who have not paid dues will not be eligible for stole and tassels at the end of the year.
NHS members please remember that you represent not only yourselves and Corona del Sol, but also the NATIONAL CHAPTER of NHS. Please keep that in mind when you are out in the community, here in the school community, and when you are on social media sites. What you say / do on those sites and in public venues can be detrimental to your reputation and to the NHS in general. Please always be conscientious and appropriate. As with any club, sport, or school sponsored activity, members and participants are held to a higher standard.
NHS members need to check this site and EM frequently for updated information regarding chapter events and community service opportunities. It is the members responsibility.
