The National Honors Society is a group for students who act as leaders, spend time doing service work, and excel academically.

Megan Evans, a new 9th grade English teacher, is running the National Honors Society this year. Evans believes that National Honors Society is a great thing for students to get involved in. “NHS is beneficial for students because it offers service opportunities and shows your academic dedication,” says Evans. She also notes that “having the National Honors Society listed on college applications and resumes gives you an edge.”

According to Evans, Taylor Swift was even in the National Honors Society in high school.

NHS is an elite group for students, so there are requirements to get in. “To receive an invitation for NHS you need to have maintained a 3.7 weighted GPA your junior and senior year.” Evans said. “For the Dobyns-Bennett chapter of NHS you simply have to pay the $5 dues both years and document at least four hours of community service.”

The dues that students joining the National Honors Society pay go into buying graduation cords and an embossment for the diplomas.

Evans is very happy to be apart of the National Honors Society, and encourages students to meet the requirements so they can join as well. “I have enjoyed getting to work with the students that have accomplished so much academically!” Evans said.
