REQUIREMENTS FOR NHS

  • Membership into Benton High School's National Honor Society (NHS) is based on four pillars: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. 

    Service, leadership, and character are defined as:

    ·  Service: This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.

    ·  Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

    ·  Character: The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
