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 honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS. NHS membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
The students that participate in NHS are juniors and seniors.
The Seniors involved in NHS are: Shawn Agar, Delaney Baca, John Baca, Debra Chavez, Elyse Chavez, Seth Cordova, Angelina Correa, Eva Gallegos, Cameron Griego, Lila Marquez, Matthew Pacheco, Korey Padilla, Shiv Patel, Jordan Sanchez, and Mario Trujillo.
