NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
National Honor Society is a national organization that recognizes outstanding high school students. The purpose of the National Honor Society at SSCPS is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to give service, to promote responsible leadership, and to encourage the development of good character in all our students. Membership in the National Honor Society is recognized as one of the highest honors that can be given to a high school student. Students do not join the society. A faculty selection committee selects students based upon the NHS criteria: academic excellence, leadership, service, and character.
The SSCPS chapter of the National Honor Society is active and visible in our building. Our NHS chapter regularly plans service projects to benefit both our school and the wider community. These service projects include peer tutoring, blood drives, and volunteering at shelters. NHS students take on a leadership role in the building through formal means such as presentations to the student body, and in an informal way by serving as role models for our younger students.
