Honor Society

Nicole Rippee, (509) 558-6040,

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.


The opportunity to join the UHS branch of the National Honor Society (NHS) happens every year with new applications from students with 3.5 cumulative GPA or higher due by Thursday, March 31, 2022. In order to join, students will submit an application, write an essay, have four (4) University High School teachers email Mrs. Rippee with a brief recommendation, and pay $4.00 dues online.


New members will receive their induction certificate to NHS and their academic letter (district academic award). Returning NHS members will receive a torch for each year they are a current member: current means dues are paid and students are holding a 3.5 cumulative GPA (advisory classes do not count). GPA’s will be checked after final grades post after the 3rd quarter.
