Honor Society helps students continue in the development of skills in leadership, service, scholarship, and character. Scholarships and college entrance are possible benefits to its members. Members wear honor cords at graduation and have their names starred in the program. Academic letters are available. This group is involved in three service projects per year.
The opportunity to join the UHS branch of the National Honor Society (NHS) happens every year with new applications from students with 3.5 GPA or higher due in by early April. The new member induction ceremony is the 3rd week of April at 7 pm.
New Members will receive their induction certificate to NHS and their academic letter (district academic award). Returning US members will receive a certificate of achievement, and a torch (school award) to add to their letter, and should pick that up in A202. (Bring $4 dues receipt and community service form with 20 hours completed to get your letter).
General member meetings in A202 every other month at 8 am. Information and forms available in A202 anytime.
