Cedarcrest High School

National Honor Society

Tracie Kelly and Tony Schenk, Advisors

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921 - National Honors Society website.

 

What We Do

NHS recognizes students for their accomplishments as well as challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and volunteer opportunities presented to them through the club.

Requirements

Students in 10-12th Grade with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above (or a 3.4 if the student is taking an honors/AP course) are eligible for consideration to become a member of the National Honors Society. If the student meets these requirements, they will receive an email in their school email which they will fill out and send back to the sender (Mrs. Kelly or Mr. Schenk). After they send in their application, the NHS board will review and approve before the student becomes a member of NHS. When the student becomes a member of NHS, they will need to complete three virtual projects or projects that have safe social distancing guidelines when in person.

 

When We Meet

Members of NHS are expected to attend our twice-monthly meetings, which are held online during advisory. At meetings, officers will present volunteer opportunities as well as important information for club members. Meeting dates for the rest of the 2020-2021 school year are:

October 19th

December 14th
