High School National Honor Society
Morenci National Honor Society
- SCHOLARSHIP denotes a commitment to learning. We should continue to learn even when formal education has ended.
- LEADERSHIP means sacrificing one’s personal interests for the interests of others. A real leader strives to train and aid others in reaching their common goals of success.
- SERVICE is the willingness to work for the benefit of those in need, without monetary compensation or public recognition.
- CHARACTER is demonstrated by such qualities as respect, responsibility, fairness, trustworthiness, caring and citizenship. National Honor Society members are always students in good standing. They have unblemished disciplinary records and do not find themselves in situations that may result in disciplinary actions.
- Students in 11th or 12th grade who have been enrolled at MHS for at least one semester.

- Candidates must have a record of demonstrated leadership, service and character. Leadership can be as simple as taking on a leadership role in class on projects, or as formal as holding an office in a club or on a team. Service is any time spent doing something for the benefit of others without expectation of payment or public acknowledgement. Character is holding oneself to a high standard of conduct always.
- At the conclusion of the second semester, the school’s guidance counselor will notify the NHS adviser of those students who have met the scholastic requirements for membership consideration (refer to the membership requirements above).
- The NHS adviser notifies these students of their initial qualification as an NHS candidate for membership and gives them a packet of materials, including a Candidate Form and an essay, to complete.
- The faculty and staff shall be requested to evaluate candidates based upon Service, Leadership, and Character using the official evaluation form provided by the chapter adviser.
- The school’s Faculty Council shall review the Candidate Form, disciplinary records and faculty evaluations in order to determine membership.
- Those students who have met the requirements for membership according to the Faculty Council shall be offered an invitation for membership which shall culminate with an induction ceremony in the spring semester.
- It is important to note that membership is a privilege and not a right. Students must maintain the highest conduct and serve as role models in the school.
