National Honor Society

For RISING Juniors and Seniors with a 3.5 unweighted GPA! Read the letter here about NHS Membership!


The application will be available on-line on Monday, August 10. The due date is Sunday, September 20 at 11:59 P.M. Late applications will not be accepted.


Additional Information:

Academics, community service, leadership and character are the four pillars of NHS membership. The academic qualification is a 3.5 unweighted GPA. On the application, students will provide information about their community service and leadership roles. The faculty committee that reviews these applications looks for leadership here at Sanderson High School. Student council, team captain, line or section leader in band or choir are examples of leadership roles. Essentially, students must show that they have been responsible for planning and organizing some activity and directing the work of others in that activity. 


The committee will also look for an enduring commitment to community service. This may be something to consider over the summer! A single episode or once-yearly project typically does not satisfy this requirement. Ongoing service is the standard.


If the committee approves a student’s application, character evaluation forms are completed by all of the student’s teachers. If a student receives a consistently high rating from them, he/she will have met the final criteria for membership and will be tapped one day during class for a surprise celebration as well as receive a letter via mail. The Induction Ceremony is mandatory and is scheduled for October 22 at 6pm.
