National Honor Society

National Honor Society (NHS) was established in 1920.  The purpose of NHS is to promote enthusiasm and recognize high school students in the areas of scholastic excellence, service, leadership, and character.  


1)  Scholastically, students must have at least a 92% GPA.  They are then eligible for consideration on the bases of service, leadership, and character.

2)  Service is the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community without financial gain.

3)  Student leadership is viewed as those students who are 

  • resourceful, 
  • good problem solvers, 
  • involved in and promoters of school activities, 
  • idea contributors, 
  • dependable
  • and is both an organizer and organized.

4) A student of good character can be said to be one who 

  • upholds principles or morality and ethics, 
  • is cooperative and responsible, 
  • demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, 
  • show courtesy, concern and respect for others 
  • and is a good citizen.

Membership is by nomination of staff, based on grades, service, leadership, and character.  Members are nominated in the spring and announced at an all-school assembly to which their parents are invited.  Following the assembly, parents are invited to eat the noon meal with their newly elected NHS member.  An initiation is held during Academic Honors Night. The members meet on the first Monday of the month during "B" lunch.  New officers are chosen at the first meeting in the fall. Members are expected to attend all meetings and participate in service projects and fund-raising activities during the school year.
