National Honor Society (NHS) as a nationwide organization was established in 1921. NHS elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character, the four four pillars of the organization. Around the country, more than 1 million students participate in NHS activities. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
NHS is primarily a service organization at MHS. Projects include:
- Peer tutoring all year long.
- Collecting gifts for Angel Tree at Christmas.
- Walkway of Lights volunteering
- Canned food drives
- Grant County Rescue Mission volunteering
Who can join: Juniors and seniors with a minimum of a 3.6 GPA, with a verifiable history of community service (about 40 hours between junior high and NHS application time). Applications also include recommendations from four teachers and three non-teachers. Should also be free of discipline referrals or anything that would detract from the standards of NHS.
