National Honor Society
A commitment to scholarship, service, leadership, and character
NHS Member Qualifications
NHS members are expected to uphold the four pillars of National Honor Society: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Applications for NHS are sent out at the beginning of the fall semester to qualifying juniors and seniors. Students who meet the scholarship standard of a 3.5 cumulative GPA (95 and above) will receive an application, which is used to select those students who not only meet the scholarship standard but have also shown excellence in service, leadership, and character. For questions about the selection process for new members, please contact NHS Adviser Korie Dutschmann.

Thrall High School National Honor Society
Member Expectations & Obligations
Membership in NHS is an ongoing responsibility. Our chapter works hard to make sure that our school and community is better in the long run thanks to our members’ efforts and leadership. In order for our chapter to maintain a level of excellence, members must meet certain expectations and fulfill obligations, which are listed below.
- Members must attend every NHS meeting. We will meet on the first Tuesday of every month.
- Members should plan on attending every NHS event/service project unless a Thrall High School extra-curricular activity prevents them from doing so.
- Members should let the adviser (Ms. Dutschmann) or the NHS president know AHEAD of time that they will not be attending a specific event/meeting.
- Members must maintain a GPA of 3.5 or higher (a 95 or above). Those who are below a 3.5 at the time of progress reports or report cards will be issued a probation letter.
- Members must turn in a printed copy of current college class grades at progress report and report card deadlines. These copies should be turned into the NHS College Grades folder on Ms. Dutschmann’s bulletin board.
- Members must complete a minimum of 10 service hours a semester. Those who do not have at least 10 hours by the end of a semester will be issued a probation letter.
- Members must document their service hours using the Service Hours Form (which can be found in the NHS Service Hours folder on Ms. Dutschmann’s bulletin board or on Google Drive), which requires signatures from service supervisors. Students should document all service hours outside of chapter service projects and turn their forms into the NHS Service Hours folder.
- Members must participate in Thrall NHS chapter service projects throughout the year (Blood Drive, Giving Tree Gift Wrapping, etc.).
- Members must maintain mature and responsible behavior in and out of the classroom. This includes respecting teachers and other students, turning in quality work on time, and behaving respectfully in all your extracurricular activities.
- Members should not partake in any illegal or distasteful activities during or outside of school. Failure to do so may result in probation or expulsion from NHS at the adviser’s discretion.
