Meeting Time/Place: Week A rotation in the Senior Cafeteria
The first meeting of the year took place on Thursday 8/24. See one of the officers and/or Mr. N if you need to pick up the agenda. Time to start getting excited about NHS!
Description: Established in 1921, National Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character.
Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 at the end of the first semester of eleventh grade meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.
Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit. Members are required to complete 20 individual service hours and participate in a chapter service project.
Leadership: Students leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others. Officers will be elected shortly after the induction ceremony. Regular attendance at meetings and events is expected.
Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.
