The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll recognition or entry on a resume, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Students are nominated for membership by a committee of faculty and staff, who meet, review any documentation, discuss, and determine those students who exhibit those attributes collectively known as the “four pillars” of the National Honor Society. Once the list of nominees for selection is populated, the qualifying students are sent an congratulatory letter informing them of the committee’s decision. The students then have the option of accepting or declining the nomination.
Four Pillars of NHS:
- Scholarship - minimum cumulative weighted GPA of 4.0
- Service - well-rounded in extra-curricular activities in the school and community
- Leadership - held a leadership position such as a club or student government officer, sports team leader, etc.
- Character - demonstrate high standards of integrity
NHS members visited Traces of Tiger in May 2022, an assisted living facility, to decorate the activity center for the upcoming Welcome to Summer party.
