What Does it mean to be a Member of NHS?
History of National Honors Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nations's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the ares of scholarship, leadership, service and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. It is important to understand that chapter membership not only recognizes students for their past accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
Membership is awarded by a vote of a faculty council, appointed by the principal, representing the faculty as a whole. Membership is "an honor bestowed upon a select group of students by the faculty council...' in accordance with the National Honor Society Constitution, and is not a right accorded the academically eligible student. Membership in the National Honor Society is an award from the Skyridge High School faculty and, as any award, is a privilege and not a right of any student.
