The National Honor Society was established in 1921 to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS honors students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character. There are more than a thousand chapters across the country:
“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.”
Membership is by invitation. Students in their second semester of their junior and senior years are sent a letter from NHS with an invitation to apply for membership. The application involves a resume and essay.
