About the National Honor Society:
Founded in 1921, the National Honor Society recognizes outstanding high school students who have demonstrated commitment to four principles: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. More than one million high school students participate in NHS related activities today. For more information about the National Honor Society, please visit the NHS website. (You can also follow NHS on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.)
