National Honor Society

National Honor Society: Morgan Scott     


According to the National Honor Society’s website, NHS is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. The National Honors Society is not just based on high academic achievements, even though it is a critical part of the criteria. The NHS recognizes students that excel in community service, leadership, and character.

The National Honor Society is a club that strives to get students involved in their school and community. Students in grades 10-12 can qualify to be in NHS. Each individual chapter of the NHS has their own specific criteria. For example, Elbert County’s criteria includes having an unweighted GPA grade of 90. Additionally, each student must have three teacher recommendations completed and turned into the advisor.

This is Danielle Franklin‘s first year as head advisor of the club. Some of her goals are to promote the club and to encourage students to participate and be active in the club. She wishes to do more service projects, so the members can have several opportunities to participate.

To conclude, the National Honor Society is an excellent club to be a member of. The club provides you the opportunity to serve as a leader, complete service projects, and to develop your character. By becoming an active member of NHS, you have several positive possibilities such as receiving a scholarship and meeting new friends. If you have the opportunity to be a part of the National Honor Society, you should consider the offer!
