Judge Memorial Catholic High School National Honor Society:
Christy Koles, advisor
National Honor Society is a group that only the best and brightest in the nation are invited to join. Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is based on criteria in four areas: scholarship (3.7 GPA), leadership, service, and character. The National Honor Society is an academic honorary society. It is also a service organization for the school that provides ushers, volunteers, and hospitality for many school activities. Members also participate in several community service events throughout the year.
Each year new students from Judge Memorial Catholic High School are inducted into the society. Students involved in this program can graduate with special recognition for their achievements. More than just the Honor Roll, the National Honor Society (NHS) serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the four areas above. It is estimated that more than one million students nation-wide participate in activities of the NHS.
There is an annual application process to join. Each fall, students may complete an information form and submit the completed form by a firm deadline to the advisor. This form indicates to the faculty the student's desire to be invited to join the National Honor Society. Please listen to the daily announcements for deadlines and visit the NHS Web page for further detail.
