National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) for students in grades 10-12 and the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) for students in grades 6-9 are service-oriented organizations for outstanding students at LAS. These organizations recognize students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Five main purposes guide both the NHS and NJHS: to create enthusiasm for scholarship, promote leadership, stimulate a desire to serve others, encrouage responsible citizenship, and develop character in secondary students. These purposes also translate into the criteria for membership selection each year.
To be eligible for consideration, students must meet the established criteria and have completed the equivalent of at least one semester of enrollment at LAS. Once a candidate is selected by the faculty committee, the student is awarded membership in the local chapter at a special induction ceremony. Members must maintain active participation in NHS/NJHS while enrolled at LAS.
