Helpful Hints

Keep the following ideas in mind when thinking about NHS:

NHS IS an honored role, not just being on the honor roll.
NHS IS meeting all four criteria, not just having a high GPA.
NHS IS individuals meeting criteria, not meeting a quota.
NHS IS committee selection, not an individual making the selection.
NHS IS A CONTINUING COMMITMENT...
NHS IS NOT A SINGLE EVENT.

To prepare for NHS (as well as for college) keep a list of...
1. school and community activities that you are involved in.
2. leadership roles you fulfill.
3. service projects and community service that you volunteer for.
4. your employment.
5. awards, honors, and recognitions.

Be as detailed as possible. Include information from the beginning of your freshman year. This will make it much easier to recall this information when you are eligible to fill out a NHS Student Activity Information Form.

Work hard on your school work. Keep a 3.33 GPA.

Students who become members of NHS are typically involved in at least a few activities, have acquired leadership roles in these activities, regularly volunteer their time to help others, and have a variety of other organizational memberships, jobs, and related activities as a part of their lives. They are attentive to the details of their schoolwork and their other activities, and they are models of character for other students at GHS.
