2020 NHS application | editable Word file  


“Being a part of the National Honor Society for the past two years has been a true honor. Getting on NHS isn’t an easy process, but it is definitely worth taking the time to apply. It helps to show applicants how they apply themselves to the four pillars of NHS which are scholarship, leadership, community service, and character. Members of NHS should uphold themselves to the highest standards and be strong role models for those around them.” ~Dana K.

  • Monday, October 19: Meeting with eligible Students
  • Wednesday, November 18: Application due to Mr. Engleman by 2:00 p.m.

*A few things to note: The faculty council is a rotating committee of 5 high school teachers who remain anonymous. The adviser does not cast a vote in the faculty council meeting. There is no set number of students that make NHS. There is no set percentage either. The council votes largely on the student information form and the comments from all of the teachers; therefore, the number of members vary each year.
