To be able to join the National Honor Society, students were selected based on academic criteria and were given the opportunity to write an essay about the importance of good character. These essays were reviewed by a panel of teachers. Students were then accepted into the National Honor Society.
The 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 recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
