National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) is a program for juniors and seniors with a grade point average (GPA) of 88.0 (weighted) or above. Requirements for membership include demonstration of character, leadership, citizenship and scholarship. The faculty council looks at grades for all four quarters of the previous school year. An overall GPA of 88.0 is the minimum requirement. 

Any student in grade 11 or 12 may apply in September. Applications are reviewed by the faculty council in October. Students applying must demonstrate previous or current community service, leadership, character and involvement in school and community activities. Applications should be turned in to Ms. Sheelar before the end of September.

Members are expected to complete 20 or more hours of volunteer community service for each year of high school. These service hours sheets can be found outside of Ms. Sheelar's classroom and on this website. 

  • Current members will be expected to attend a fall, winter and spring meeting to discuss plans for the year. Check your e-mail and listen to announcements for updates. 
  • Current members should join the NHS Google Classroom page for announcements and updates. New officers are selected in mid September. 
  • Current senior members receive a cord at the end of the year that may be worn during graduation with their cap and gown. Seniors may keep these cords. Cords should be picked up from Ms. Sheelar during cap and gown distribution.
