On March 28th Hatboro-Horsham National Honor Society (NHS) inducted its newest members into their program. Lauren Gaffney, NHS Advisor, couldn’t be more proud of the students for all their hard work and being such well-rounded students.
The National Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization to recognize outstanding high school students. NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students are involved with NHS activities. NHS not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but challenges them to be as active as they can be in school activities and community service.
To become a member of NHS, you must be selected as a candidate by your chapter’s faculty council. At Hatboro-Horsham they need to have a weighted GPA of 5.3 or 3.75 simple GPA. It is also required to have a certain amount of community service hours. A selection committee then goes through and selects which individuals will be accepted.
Congrats to NHS newest members and HH is looking forward to seeing what you will do next!
