National Honor Society
Tracie Kelly and Tony Schenk, Advisors
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. 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. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921 - National Honors Society website
What We Do
NHS recognizes students for their accomplishments as well as challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and volunteer opportunities presented to them through the club.
Students in grades 10-12 with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above (or a 3.4 if the student is taking an honors/AP course) are eligible for consideration to become a member of the National Honor Society. If the student meets these requirements, they will receive an application which must be filled out and turned in by the deadline that will be reviewed and approved before the student becomes a member of NHS. Once a student is a member of NHS they must perform 30 hours of volunteer-work each year they are in the club. 10 of the 30 hours must be in-club and the student must also participate in at least 2 events sponsored by NHS throughout the school-year.
When We Meet
Members of NHS are expected to attend our twice-monthly meetings, which are held in the theater during advisory. At meetings, officers will present volunteer opportunities as well as important information for club members. Meeting dates for the rest of the 2018-19 school year are: December 13, January 10, January 24, February 7, March 7, March 21, April 4, April 18, May 16, May 30.
