NHS is a wonderful organization because it addresses the student as an entire person who is successful in academics but also serves the community and represents the community with strong leadership and excellent character.
NHS is such a wonderful organization. My students strive to be better people because of this organization and its four pillars. Thank you.
For a small school, my students are really going above and beyond to engage with our community and help out, especially because there are many below the poverty line in our community.
