Contact person: Ms. Sheridan, room 428, firstname.lastname@example.org
Overview of the Application Process: Ms. Sheridan initiates the process by sending out an invite at the beginning of the school year to all sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a 4.0 GPA. Alongside the GPA requirement, potential members will be directed to provide documentation of 30 hours of community service completed during the past year, so for invites going out next year during the 2021-2022 school year, this would require proof of service hours from August 2020 to August 2021 (this may be adjusted due to the continuing impact of Covid to include a longer period of time, such as submitting hours from the past 2 years, and/or an opportunity to submit a research project instead if unable to do community service during the pandemic). Potential members will also submit an essay explaining their experiences in our core pillars of leadership, character, service, and scholarship. The final step of the process involves submitting a "resume" listing any recognition/honors/awards, job experiences (if applicable), community service, and involvement in leadership/ other activities. Faculty and staff also submit recommendations on the students who are applying. After potential members are selected and inducted, students remain active in NHS by maintaining their 4.0 GPA, attending meetings and service projects, and documenting 30 service hours annually.
