National Honor Society


The National Honor Society (NHS) was established in 1921 to recognize outstanding high school students.  NHS members must demonstrate excellence in Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character; the four pillars of the NHS.  Four main purposes guide NHS chapters: "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" (NHS Constitution).
