The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
The National Honor Society is working on their annual “Secret Santa” Service Project. We have 10 groups of NHS members and fellow students who are trying to make some Christmas Wishes come true for 10 local children in our county, We know that this year is a tough year, and we are trying to do our part to spread the gift of giving and Christmas Cheer.
