National Honor Society recognizes students who have displayed high standards of character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Junior and senior students who have been at GHS for at least one semester, and have a GPA of 3.5 or greater, are notified at the beginning of the school year of their eligibility to apply for membership. Students must complete an application form (available from the Student Counseling Center) that provides additional information related to their character, leadership, and service. Students are then considered for membership in NHS by a Selection Committee of GHS teachers. Students who are accepted for membership in NHS are inducted in a special membership ceremony attended by accepted student inductees, their family and friends, as well as current NHS members.
What Does National Honor Society Do?

Obligations of Membership
Members must attend the regular chapter meetings held the second Wednesday of each month. Members must donate ten hours of service work each semester and members must continuously maintain and demonstrate the standards by which they were selected (character, scholarship, leadership, and service).
