National Honor Society
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY GUIDELINES
The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 to create an organization recognizing and encouraging student academic achievement while also developing characteristics essential to all citizens of a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, character, service and leadership remain as relevant today as when NHS was first founded. The Albert M. Goggans Chapter of NHS was founded at TVS in 1965.
Selection for membership is considered by many as the pinnacle of achievement in one’s high school career. It is an honor that carries with it the responsibility of continued demonstration of the founding principles of scholarship, character, leadership and service. To that end, membership selection is a privilege, not an entitlement. An NHS Faculty Council is charged with evaluating the candidacy of potential members through information submitted to them by interested and qualified Juniors and Seniors.
