National Honor Society (NHS)
The 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. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
How do you join?
Juniors and Seniors are invited to apply if they meet the academic standards set forth by the faculty committee. Applicants are then evaluated based on the four pillars of the society: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
We meet at various times throughout the school year at Bastrop High School.
Some of our service projects include tutoring at Bastrop Middle School and assisting at the MS 150, a two-day fundraising bike ride organized by the National MS Society.
