NATIONAL HONOR

SOCIETY

In 1921, the National Honor Society was formed by Dr. Edward Rynearson as a result of a growing need for a national organization whose objectives were as follows: “to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in the nation's secondary schools.” Since its inception, the National Honor Society has proved to be a concrete means of promoting high school academic achievement and improving both the individual and the school.
