Description of Club: The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. According to its Constitution, the purpose of this organization shall be 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. These ideals form not only the selection criteria for prospective students, but also the principles by which members are expected to guide their education.
Requirements for membership:
Membership in NHS is a selection process that begins with identifying those students who have earned an unweighted GPA of 3.5 prior to their junior year. Those meeting this initial requirement are invited to join by having two letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf from teachers, coaches, mentors, pastors, or other adults who can attest to the student's fitness for membership. Members will also be required to pay annual dues of $15. To maintain active status in NHS, students should maintain their GPA and complete 25 service hours throughout the school year. Service hours are due in April for graduating seniors and in May for juniors.
Letter of invitation will be sent to juniors in early September.
