National Honor Society

NHS LogoOur National Honor Society chapter is composed twenty-three senior and sixteen junior 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.
