A.G. West Black Hills High School National Honor Society
About National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is a nationally-recognized scholarship and service organization begun by the National Association for Secondary School Principals in 1921. The goal of the organization is to both recognize and encourage the development of academic achievement, while at the same time, developing students with a service-mindset, and characteristics that are essential to flourishing in todays challenging society.
Membership in NHS is both an honor and a commitment. For over 100 years a NHS membership has been the mark of true academic student achievement. But it is not simply an honor roll, or a scholarship group, but is an active organization which aims to shape the school and local community through active service projects and civic engagement yearly. Students are expected to participate in meetings, all chapter activities, and engage in cultivating the community through service.
