National Honor Society
EUREKA NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY CHAPTER
NHS Advisor: Karen Mettler
National Honor Society (NHS) is a prestigious organization that promotes recognition for students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. The Honor Society member exhibits academic achievement, leadership, honorable and admirable character, as well as service demonstrating that the member is willing to use talents and skills for the improvement of society. The Eureka High School Chapter was created to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in students.
Selection for membership at Eureka High School is conducted by the faculty council and is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have attended EHS for the equivalent of one semester and who have a cumulative scholastic average of 90 percent. The faculty council, on the basis of a written application that addresses leadership, service, and character, then evaluates students who meet the scholastic requirement.
Membership in National Honor Society is both an honor and a responsibility. Students selected for membership are expected to continue to demonstrate the qualities of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Members of NHS are required to complete two types of service projects each year: one for the school and one for the community.
