    How NHS Benefits Your Student

    Established in 1921, the National Honor Society (NHS) is the oldest and most respected student recognition organization in the United States. Membership in NHS distinguishes students who have committed themselves to the pursuit of academic excellence, community improvement, and personal development.

    More Than an Honor Roll
    Academic achievement is a core component of NHS, but today’s students need much more than just good grades to get ahead. NHS’s focus on service, leadership, and character helps students build the skills and relationships that will ensure success throughout their academic years and beyond.

    When NHS members participate in community service projects, attend national leadership events, and serve as ambassadors to their schools and communities, they:

    • Connect with faculty, community leaders, and local business leaders who can provide recommendations and references, as well as leads on future internships and jobs
    • Build a portfolio of life achievements that can be featured on applications for colleges and careers, as well as cover letters and resumes
    • Begin networking with other accomplished student leaders who are focused on personal growth and building a solid foundation for their future endeavors
    • Learn how to be a more effective leader, and why leadership skills are an essential tool at any stage of life.

    A Proud Tradition
    With more than 90 years of history, the NHS membership card and NHS membership certificate (available from your NHS adviser) represent your student’s participation in a proud tradition that honors the achievement and effort of young people working to make change in their schools and communities, a tradition that includes such admired and respected names as Gerald Ford, Elizabeth Dole, Katie Couric, and Meryl Streep.
