National Honor Society Induction Celebrates Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service
May 14, 2014
Sacred Heart recently inducted 15 new members from the Class of 2015 and 25 members from the Class of 2016 into the National Honor Society. Founded in 1921, the National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize high school students who have excelled in four characteristics during their high school years; leadership, service, character and scholarship. NHS members are not only acknowledged for their accomplishments, but continually challenged to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service, and to work for the betterment of their community.
“Every school has its own set of rules and standards for membership. Sacred Heart candidates must have attained a cumulative GPA of 3.67 or higher in the sophomore or junior year and must also demonstrate outstanding qualities of leadership, character, and service. Once the student has become a member, she must maintain her GPA and attend all NHS meetings as well as complete service requirements,” offered moderator Sally Tyler.
