NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. The Southeastern Chapter of the National Honor Society is an affiliated chapter of the prestigious national organization. Membership is open to juniors and seniors who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. Students are selected for membership by a majority vote of the five-member faculty council. Areas of evaluation are described below.
Juniors and Seniors must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 to be invited to apply to the Southeastern Chapter of the National Honor Society.
In addition to the scholarship requirement, you must submit proof of documented community service hours.
Character and Leadership
To evaluate a candidate’s character and leadership, the faculty council uses several forms of input for example recommendation letters, documentation of school activities, and a personal essay to name a few.
Applications for the National Honor Society are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership
