National Honor Society is all about scholarship, leadership, character and service. It is a national organization to which CHS proudly belongs. It is an honor and a privilege to be a member of this group. There are responsibilities as well that come with membership.
The following are the criteria for membership in National Honor Society:
Scholarship – Members have completed 5 semesters of high school and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 to be considered for membership in NHS.
Character – Members must be of good character. They must not have had any serious infractions of school policy during their time at CHS.
Service – NHS is a service organization. This means that we volunteer to help out with various school and community events that are worthwhile and benefit the community.
Leadership – NHS members are student leaders by virtue of the fact that they give freely of themselves, stand up for what is right and present as role models by adhering to the four tenets of National Honor Society.
Community service participation as well as attendance at bi-monthly, lunchtime meetings in CHS room 11 is required for continued membership.
As NHS is a prestigious national organization, membership in this group is a plus when applying to the college or university of your choice.
