Rebel Rouser StaffThe National Honor Society (NHS), H. Bentley Lawson Chapter, is the leader among educational organizations and societies that promotes recognition of students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership and service.NHS is a very difficult organization to gain membership from, it is a privilege. In order to qualify for NHS you must have an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher in your junior year and maintain it throughout your membership. Juniors get tapped in early September, and are asked to write a mandatory essay, must get the approval from at least three of their core teachers, and are encouraged to participate in NHS spirit week set by the seniors. Senior NHS members run the chapter and guide the potential junior members through their first year. Junior members don’t officially get inducted until the late spring.Meeting dates: Every other Wednesday during lunch in room 454.
