Lowellville High School National Honor Society
Membership in the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Our chapter of NHS has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter and the more than 16,000 chapters in schools across the nation strive to give practical meaning to the Society's standards of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
These four ideals have been considered as the basis for selection. No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The National Honor Society strives to recognize the total student - one who excels in all of these areas. The standards used for selection are as follows:
Scholarship - 3.4 GPA cumulative average
Leadership - Letter of endorsement
Service - A minimum of 30 community service hours
Character - Average vote of 3.5 or higher
Membership, however, is more than an honor. It incurs a responsibility and an obligation to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that resulting in our selection. Membership also carries a responsibility to the chapter. If our chapter to the NHS is to be effective and meaningful, each member must become involved.
Due to Covid-19 and limitations to volunteering at some local agencies, we have decided to reduce the amount of hours necessary to apply for NHS this year, 2020-2021. You will need to have 25 service hours completed with your application. If you do not have 25 service hours completed, then you need to write a letter to the committee explaining why you could not meet those hours, what steps you took to try to meet those hours, and what obstacles kept you from doing so.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
