National Honors Society
"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." (from the NHS Constitution)
The National Honor Society was established in 1921 to recognize outstanding high school students. Under the leadership of Dr. Edward Rynearson, principal of Fifth Avenue High School in Pittsburgh, a national honor society was organized. It has become a premier organization that is more than just an honor roll. The National Honor Society from its inception was regarded as a concrete way to promote high school academic standards, a means of ensuring the continuation of democracy and an instrument for the betterment of the individuals and the school. The principles of the National Honor Society are: scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. These characteristics are exemplified through our participation in and planning of community service projects, the leadership positions students hold, and striving to promote scholarship throughout their high school careers.
Requirements: Students must be Sophomores or Juniors. Students GPA are reviewed by NHS Adviser to determine if they meet the 3.5 cumulative GPA requirement during the spring semester of the academic year. Students who meet the 3.5 cumulative GPA requirement, receive a letter from the National Honor Society inviting them to fill out an application to be considered for induction into the National Honor Society. Student Applications are then reviewed and discussed by the National Honor Society Faculty Council. The National Honor Society Faculty Council then determines which students are prepared to be inducted into the National Honor Society. (IF necessary students may be asked to a one on one interview with the National Honor Society Faculty Council, .) Students who will be inducted receive a letter congratulating them on being selected to join the National Honor Society. Students and their parents are then invited to participate and view the induction ceremony. During the induction ceremony new inductees pledge to adhere and be exemplars of the principles of the National Honor Society.
