The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation's premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS).These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools." These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter. At East Ridge High School we take these guidelines very seriously and use them to guide our members, select new members and create an atmosphere of volunteerism and leadership which will carry our members into their future careers.
