Coconino High School
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to further their development through active involvement in school activities and community service. Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.
- To create enthusiasm for scholarship
- To stimulate a desire to render service
- To promote leadership
- to develop character
How Can You Become a Member?
You can become a member through a selection process that begins in September, and concludes in May with induction into the school's National Honor Society chapter. Eligible students will be invited to apply for membership in September. Sophomores with a cumulative grade point average of 4.0. and juniors or seniors with a 3.6 cumulative grade point average will be invited to apply.
Understanding The Obligations Of Membership
Students who accept membership and are inducted into the chapter should be aware of the time and commitment involved with this honor. For example, there will be chapter meetings twice each month and members must participate in chapter and individual service projects to benefit the school and community.
