National Honor Society


​​National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is the front-runner of organizations and societies that
promote appropriate recognition for students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the
 areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. The purpose of this organization is to create
enthusiasm for scholarship, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. Membership,
then, is both an honor and a responsibility. College admissions officers often regard Honor Society
membership as a valid indicator that the applicant will succeed at the post-secondary education
 level.  The Honor Society member has already exhibited academic achievement, leadership,
honorable and admirable character, as well as service that demonstrate the member is willing to use
 his or her talents and skills for the improvement of society. Members of the society fall under
the close scrutiny of the student body, the faculty, the administration, and the local communities; therefore, members of the society must continually exhibit the qualities and characteristics by which they were selected, conducting themselves at all times in a manner befitting the school's top students.
