North High School’s National Honor Society

 

According to its official website (: https://www.nhs.us/), National Honor Society (NHS) has been recognizing outstanding student achievement since 1921. Becoming a member of NHS is a distinction that holds significance throughout a student’s academic life and beyond. The official NHS insignia is a symbol of excellence proudly worn by members and widely recognized by school administrators, faculty members, students, and parents alike.

 

Today, NHS chapters are found in all fifty states. Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools" (from the NHS Constitution).

 

 Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. Instilling these values early in life helps to lay the groundwork for a lifetime of service. Membership in National Honor Society is both an honor and a responsibility.  Members of North High School’s Chapter are responsible for activities like our school’s weekly recycling pick up, volunteering with the Special Olympics, and serving meals at Family Promise (formerly The Beacon House). 

 

Current sophomore, juniors, and seniors with a cumulative 3.5 GPA are eligible for selection for the 2021-22 school year. This information will also be available on the school’s website after spring break. There will be reminders through the daily announcements the week of April 5. Candidate’s resumes will be due on April 21st. Resumes should be submitted electronically to both drichardson@ecasd.us and plarson1@ecasd.us. Determination of selection will be a combined result of a 3.5 GPA, a solid resume, and a strong faculty rating. The new member lists will be posted mid-May outside rooms 241 and 253.

 

Resumes should include activities and details that portray the four pillars of the organization. Include any activities, jobs, and volunteer work you have been part of starting with the summer before your freshmen year. Resumes should be very detailed with dates, hours, and explanations. There are many resume templates available online.
