National Honor Society (NHS) Application for 2020-21
More than just an honor roll, National Honor Society (NHS) serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. NHS’s primary goal is not only to prepare students for the university but for life. It engages students in service projects, leadership development, scholarship searches, and career exploration.
The following is a note from our current iLEAD Exploration’s NHS president, Mary Miller:
“NHS is one of the most amazing groups you can join in high school. Every year we get the opportunity to complete 10 school service hours and 10 independent hours. This gives us a chance to meet students throughout the school and serve your communities. In NHS, we learn how to successfully serve our school, meet other high school students, and become tech-savvy. Personally, I joined the NHS because I was super excited to meet other high school students. It has taught me time management, helped me brainstorm service projects, and even helped me apply for college! If you meet the requirements, I highly encourage you to apply for the NHS.”
