National Honor Society

Printer-friendly version

The National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society are national organizations that recognize students for their achievements in the areas of knowledge, character, leadership and service. The NHS/NJHS aims to create and maintain a high profile on campus and encourage other students to meet the standards required for membership.

There are 2 high profile induction ceremonies each year during Fall and Spring Family Weekend to honor new members and present the ideals that the NHS/NJHS aims to uphold before the R-MA community. All members are encouraged to wear the honor cord on Mondays and for special ceremonies as a mark of honor and in order to keep the organization uppermost in the minds of all members of the R-MA community.

The NHS/NJHS typically holds meetings on a monthly basis, as the school calendar allows, that include opportunities to interview faculty members, alumni guest speakers, quiz bowls and other activities. The NHS/NJHS also sponsors seminars on intellectually stimulating topics for the benefit of the entire R-MA community, organizes recognition initiatives that create interaction between faculty and students, gives festive surprise gifts to students and is in the process of creating a NHS/NJHS commemoration garden. The NHS/NJHS also supports our many community service initiatives.

The NHS/NJHS awards scholarships to its most active members to help prepare them for college, and a NHS/NJHS trip to Hershey Park as a reward to members for their hard work and support of the organization.
