NHS Pillars

National Honor Society (NHS) is more than just an honor roll. The Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of Scholarship, Character, Leadership and Service. These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.

Scholarship - Juniors who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.66 (on a 4.0 scale) or Seniors with a cumulative grade point average of 3.50, meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.

Character - The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.

Leadership - Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

Service - This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.
