Over the past couple of years, we have had a groundswell of requests from National Society of High School Scholars members to connect with each other in their own schools and communities, and to better stay connected as they matriculate through high school and on to college and career. NSHSS is answering that call this Spring by piloting our #NSHSSNextChapter program.
NSHSS Chapters are student-led, and advisor-guided, groups of NSHSS members in their high schools that adhere to the NSHSS Chapter Constitution and Chapter Bylaws.
Members will gain valuable leadership and team building skills, create lifelong friendships, and work together to make a positive impact not only in their local schools and communities but also with other chapters and members around the world, through the Ambassador program, and in online/social communities established to support their desire to grow together.
High-achieving students may have several choices when it comes to joining honors organizations or clubs, and joining NSHSS does not preclude a talented scholar from committing to any other organization that meets their interests and objectives. When there are many organizations serving a community, that community is better for it.
What exactly should an honor society do? Hear what members, educators, and business leaders say.
