National English Honor Society is an honor society for the recognition and promotion of outstanding work in English among students in grades 11-12. The purpose of NEHS is to provide an opportunity for above average students of English to work together in an organization dedicated to enjoying and recognizing the usefulness and beauty of language skills. NEHS will also recognize and promote outstanding work in English among high school students and members are eligible for various scholarship opportunities. We will participate in a number of activities such as National Read Across America Day, service projects that relate to literacy, tutoring, and teacher appreciation projects. The organization will have four presiding officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The elections will take place at the first organizational meeting before the induction ceremony. Senior members in good standing will receive a stole to wear at graduation.
Requirements: Students must earn and maintain a 3.75 GPA in English, pay dues, purchase a graduation stole, and attend the induction ceremony. Regular attendance at club meetings and events is also required. Students are required to earn points through service work each year to maintain membership.
Cost: Members pay one time dues of $35. This includes local and national membership and a graduation cord. Colors are Navy and Gold.
