National Honor Society

Advisor:  Karen Schaffner

The National Honor Society (NHS) is a nationwide organization for high school students in the USA.  Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship(academic achievement),  leadership, service, and character.  The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School  Principals in  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
National Honor Society chapters  are dedicated to service in the community and at the school.  Our chapter honors that commitment through an annual food drive and participates in the school cancer walk and the Veterans' Day ceremony.

Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning:
1. to create enthusiasm for scholarship
2. to stimulate a desire to render service
3. to promote leadership
4. to develop character in the students of secondary school.
