It was hard to miss the warm waves of the members of the National Honor Society as you passed their table at the activity fair. 

The National Honors Society (NHS) is an organization that involves four main pillars: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics should be expressed in each candidate upon being chosen to apply for the NHS.

In order to be eligible for NHS, a student must be a sophomore or junior with at least a 3.4 GPA.  They must also have a clean disciplinary record — no A.C.E.  

Eligible students must complete an application, addressing the four pillars of community service that are part of NHS’s philosophy.

“Noblesse Oblige, or NHS’s motto, the goal is to help others based on the strengths you have,” said vice president senior Casimir Morgan.

The club’s pursuit is to have each member better themselves as they better their community – involvement in volunteer community service, school service, and peer tutoring are a few major components of the organization.

NHS meetings are on the third Thursday of every month in the school’s auditorium.

Morgan seems excited about upcoming events. NHS is planning a blood drive in the spring. “We just help out wherever we need and try to make our school community a better place,” he said.
