National Honor Society
The National Honor Society
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 those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. Students in grades 10, 11 and 12 are eligible for induction into National Honor Society. The committee bases its selection on excellence in scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
The HCS Student Council plans school events such as prom and spirit week. They also assist in the administration of events for the local community, such as donation collections. Student council members bring ideas, requests, and feedback to each meeting. They also take part in a democratic process that gives students a voice in creating the year-long calendar of events and activities. All are welcome to attend and leadership is elected by the student body and the council.
