The National Honor Society is the leader among organizations and societies that promote appropriate recognition for students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service.
         National Honor Society membership is often regarded as a valid indicator that the student will succeed in life and particularly in studies at the post-secondary level.  The Honor Society member has already exhibited academic achievement, leadership, honorable and admirable character, as well as service demonstrating that the member is willing to use talents and skills for the improvement of society.
         The National Association of Secondary School Principals believes that the National Honor Society has made a positive difference in the lives of individuals and in the spirit of the community and the school.
