NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The National Honor Society is an organization sponsored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (Reston, VA). National Honor Society membership is open to juniors and seniors upon invitation. The Society selects its members based on national standards. There are four qualities required of its members: they are scholarship, character, leadership, and service. To qualify scholastically, a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative grade point average is required.
National Honor Society is a service organization dedicated to bettering the school and the community at large. Students are selected for their excellence in four areas: service, leadership, scholarship, and character. During the course of the school year, our NHS chapter engages in service projects like donating money, food, and clothing to the poor, sponsoring school activities to raise school spirit and sponsor a sense of community, holding fundraising drives to benefit worthy national, local, and school charities, and running a tutoring program to mentor fellow Fisher students in need of academic help.
Junior and Senior students earning a cumulative GPA of 3.5 higher must meet the following pre-requisite (sophomores will be invited following the first semester):
Candidates must submit to the NHS advisor (Cathy Henry) a request to receive the application packet of information for consideration of NHS.
A formal typed request must be 200-250 words stating why the candidate feels he or she could potentially be a member of NHS.
Clearly documented commitment to leadership and service.
