National Honor Society (NHS)
Advisor: Mr. Glazebrook (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The National Honor Society is a nation-wide organization that was founded in 1921 to recognize and encourage academic achievement as well as characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy, namely character, service, and leadership. The National Honor Society flourished, and today there are more than 20,000 chartered chapters in the United States. Prescott High School has been a charter member since 1966. Each spring students who are sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have maintained at least a 3.5 average GPA are invited to join. A committee of five teachers reads the applications and recommends students for induction into NHS.
National Honor Society (NHS) at Prescott High School is based on the belief that true knowledge includes not only scholarship but also service, leadership, and character.

Oprah Winfrey
