National Honor Society

 
The National Honor Society is composed of twenty-nine senior members who continue to exhibit the guiding principles of our National Honor Society chapter chartered in 1963: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month. Each member is required to complete two additional community service hours of his or her choice per month. The Society completes at least one group service project per month. Please download the pdfs on the right for further information.

Please continue to collect and bring in pull tabs from canned foods and canned beverages for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati! We collected thirty-seven and a half pounds of pull tabs in the 2017-2018 school year. One pound equals 1,600 pull tabs. RMH recycles the pull tabs and funds families staying at RMH while a sick child is cared for at Children's Hospital. Let's top this total this school year!

NHS now recycles used markers, highlighters, and dry erase markers of any brand through the Crayola ColorCycle program. Send all used markers of any type or brand to Mrs. Deuer at GHS via interoffice mail or drop off box in the main office.
