Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Our chapter has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five ideals are considered as the basis for selection. No student is inducted simply because of high academic average. The BOMLA National Honor Society will recognize the total student—one who excels in all areas as outlined in our campus core standards.
The standards used for selection are:
Current 10th, 11th and 12th grade students
Scholarship: 90% cumulative average for 4 consecutive six weeks of the current school year.
Leadership, service, character, and citizenship: as demonstrated by activities and teacher evaluations
Membership, however, is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that result in a student’s selection. Membership also carries a responsibility to the chapter. If our NHS chapter is to be effective and meaningful, each member must become involved.
NHS members are required to pay annual membersip dues ($20), complete 15 community service hours per semester, participate in chapter service projects, attend bi-weekly scheduled meetings, and consistently maintain the cumulative 90% gpa.
