National Honor Society

 


 

 

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. Membership in this organization is an honor. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character.

 

These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921.

Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools." These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter. At Lake Minneola High School we take these guidelines very seriously and use them to guide our members, select new members and create an atmosphere of volunteerism and leadership which will carry our members into their future careers.

Meetings

Every first and third Tuesday of every month immediately after school in room 182.  Committees will meet as needed.
