The purpose of National Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.
More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Membership Selection Process
Sophomores, juniors or seniors who have acquired a 3.4 GPA will be invited to apply based on scholarship. Students will receive an eligibility email during the month of February in which an invitation to an informational meeting which will be held in Messer Auditorium.
Eligible students must indicate their desire to be considered by submitting materials demonstrating their accomplishments in the remaining three areas of character, leadership, and service.
The NHS Selection Committee uses the information gathered by the candidates to make membership selections. The five-person NHS Selection Committee is a requirement of the national constitution. Candidates will be considered based on the quality of their essays and evidence of character, leadership, and service. Because all four areas are considered in the selection process, a top academic student may not be selected if any of the other areas are lacking.
While membership in National Honor Society is an honor for deserving students, it is also a responsibility. Upon induction into NHS, selected students will be expected to participate in chapter activities, including meetings and service projects, and to uphold the standards of character, scholarship, leadership, and service.
