National Honor Society
Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Our chapter has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four ideals are considered as the basis for selection. No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The National Honor Society strives to recognize the total student—one who excels in all of these areas. The standards used for selection are:
Membership, however, is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that result in a student’s selection.
New inductees are selected each spring, and the new members receive a membership card and pin at the annual induction ceremony. Each year, our members and prospective members volunteer in our district and community to gain service hours. Upon graduation, our members are recognized by wearing royal blue and gold cords. We congratulate and thank our members for their contributions to our school and community.
