National Honors Society

Sponsor: Lakesha Mitchell
About: The SC Whitmore National Honor Society is an organization for students in grades 10-12. Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Members complete volunteer hours and work together to complete at least one service project each school year. Membership into the National Honor Society allows students to apply for over 400 college scholarships not available to other students. Members also have access to numerous college planning services.

Each chapter is required to publish its qualifications for membership, which is based on the four pillars of NHS:

  1. Scholarship
    Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)
  2. Service
    This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
  3. Leadership
    Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
  4. Character
    The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
