National Honor Society
National Honor Society (NHS)
The National Honor Society recognizes outstanding high school students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Students are considered for membership starting at the end of the first semester of junior year. Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 4.5, have at least 30 hours of volunteer service dating from the beginning of their freshman academic year, and have strong leadership skills and character as evaluated by LFHS faculty and staff. Once inducted into NHS, members continue to contribute their leadership and service to many community organizations, such as Roberti Community House, Beacon Place, GLASA, LEAD, PADS, and Catholic Charities' “Adopt-a-Family” program. Members are required to volunteer at least 25 hours of service per year, through NHS-sponsored activities. An executive committee comprised of 11 members is selected by their NHS peers and is responsible for the day to day operations of the organization on an annual basis.
Important Information for Current Juniors:
The NHS Junior Application will open in the spring of each year, at the beginning of February, with an email being sent out to all eligible students. Students/parents will be notified through email. The application will consist of a letter of intent, gathering signatures for service hours, extracurriculars, sports, jobs, and similar experiences, and an essay. The LFHS Faculty Committee will then review all applications. If accepted, the NHS/Cum Laude induction ceremony will be held in the spring.
Spring 2023 Application Deadline: March 2023 via a Google Form (no paper copies will be accepted)
