National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is an organization in which the membership consists of intelligent and well-rounded high school student leaders, whose integrity and commitment to service of their community and school are evident and tangible.
You cannot join NHS. You must be inducted. In order to be inducted, you must first be deemed academically eligible and then apply for membership by completing a Student Activity Information Form/Resume that documents WDHS Activities, Community Service & Leadership. Only Juniors and Seniors who are academically eligible may apply. However, if belonging to NHS is a goal of yours, your activities as a Freshman and Sophomore are critical.

 The qualifications for entry into the NHS are as follows:

  • Non-rounded, weighted 92.0 cumulative GPA after 4 semesters as a Junior and after 6 semesters as a Senior. 
  • Maintenance of a weighted 92.0 cumulative GPA after induction.
  • Outstanding character.
  • Continuous tangible evidence of service and leadership in grades 9 through 12.
  • Membership in at least three extra-curricular activities per year for grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. Consistent participation in activities is encouraged.
  • After selection, participation of mandatory NHS events (meetings and activities) is required.

Eligible students will receive a Letter of Eligibility through the mail during August prior to the start of their junior and/or senior year.


For more information you may email Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Stuart, NHS Advisers.
