National Honor Society

The National Honor Society was established in 1921.  Under the leadership of Dr. Edward Rynearson the organization grew to more than 1,000 chapters by 1930, quickly developing into one of the country's leading educational groups.  Four main purposes have guided chapters of the NHS from the beginning:  "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools."  These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.

Any individual Junior or Senior who meets the established qualifications and is interested in becoming a member of National Honor Society must complete the application process, which includes service hours that must be recorded and subsequently submitted to Mrs. Cindy Vertin by the established deadline.
