What is NHS and why should I join? 

 

Membership in the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Our chapter of NHS has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter and the more than 16,000 chapters in schools across the nation strive to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

 

What do I need to be accepted? 

The faculty board selects members from the applicants that demonstrate the best BHHS has to offer in terms of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Typically those selected have an average of 25 hours of community service per year, have held at least 2 peer leadership positions and have excellent character references from their teachers.

  • Paying the $20 (+$2 service charge) Chapter Dues
  • Attendance at the monthly meetings
  • Participation in the Chapter’s group service project
  • Continued community service (25 hours min.)
