National Honor Society

Colorado Early Colleges Parker’s National Honor Society chapter has successfully completed its third year and is looking forward to an innovative fourth with the addition of committed and energetic members. If you are interested in becoming a part of this prestigious group, please read about the background information on NHS and the application process below.  

 

Since its inception in 1921, NHS has been recognizing students who excel in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The organization is more than an honor roll, but rather a service group. Student members are expected to complete thirty hours of community service per year through a school service project and an individual service project. In addition, NHS members will have the opportunity to plan fun events and the privilege to attend field trips. If the student is a senior, they will qualify to apply for the NHS scholarship. National Honor Society membership primarily involves service, but it also is a great way for students to demonstrate to colleges and employers that they are highly effective leaders and scholars. 

 

To qualify for membership, students must have an unweighted GPA of at least 3.5 and students must be in grades 10-12 for the 2019-2020 school year. The candidate must also document his or her involvement in service and leadership activities. Candidates must also complete a one page essay that demonstrates character (see student information form). If this is an organization that you would be interested in, please complete the student information form and return it to Ms. Lomibao by November 15, 2019. Submission of the student information form does not guarantee acceptance. A faculty committee will review applications and make their final decisions in December 2019.
