The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 to recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. Now, 95 years later, the National Honor Society has become a prestigious international organization. Through the NHS chapter service activities, members maintain and extend the qualities that won them selection. Membership is both an honor and a commitment.
Throughout the years, millions of students from all over the world have been selected as members of the National Honor Society. Today we salute the students selected this year from St. Michael’s School who have met the high standards of scholarship, leadership, service, and character—the criteria by which they are judged. Please join us in welcoming our newest NHS members.
The St. Michael’s School NHS chapter began in 2000. Through the years, students have been involved in service activities around the school and around the country. Since 2005, the NHS members have worked with Habitat for Humanity, an international organization that helps build houses for people who would not otherwise be able to own their own homes. For the past 3 years, the SMS NHS Students have adopted as their own, the Fundacion Amigos Contra el Cancer Infantil, also known as Casa FACCI, where NHS members have conducted Christmas toy drives, toiletry drives, and spent spending precious time with these children, coloring with them or painting their faces.
The Principles of the National Honor Society
Scholarship is the power of the mind to dispel ignorance through scientific investigation of the truth.
Leadership is the power of personality that blazes the trail for humanity’s upward climb.
Character, the composite of all the common virtues, sets the seal of righteousness upon our every endeavor.
Service is the beginning and end of our education, a constant striving to help those who are less fortunate and to put others before our own pleasures.
