National Honor Society

Advisor: Amanda Brown


.

In the early 1920's, a committee was formed to recognize and honor outstanding high school students. Today, it is estimated that nearly one million students participate in the National Honor Society. National Honor Society chapters can be found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada, and many U.S. territories.

Four main purposes have been the foundation of the National Honor Society from the beginning: "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools." These four purposes also serve as the criteria for membership into the National Honor Society.

Membership in the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors that any student can achieve during their high school careers. The Ada-Borup chapter of the National Honor Society participates in one annual event: the induction ceremony of new members. The induction ceremony and preceding supper take place during November in the high school commons. The National Honor Society is advised by Amanda Brown.
