BHS National Honor Society
What is NHS?
The local chapter of the National Honor Society is a service organization founded upon the premise that one should use one's talents, skills and knowledge for the betterment of others. Students are selected for membership because they have demonstrated outstanding achievement in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service to school and community. Meetings of the Brookfield Chapter are held twice per month after school.Members are required to perform a minimum of 10 hours of community service per marking period in addition to participating in NHS activities such as: holding Blood Drives for the American Red Cross, providing peer tutoring service, planning and hosting the annual WeCare 5K fundraiser.
Academically eligible students who meet the minimum GPA requirement are notified in the third marking period of their junior or senior year. Those who wish to be considered for membership in the National Honor Society must prepare and submit an application. A National Honor Society Selection Committee composed of faculty members will meet to review applications and to designate accepted candidates. Detailed selection criteria may be obtained from the NHS faculty advisor or from the website.
New members of the National Honor Society are inducted in May.
