National Honor Society

Department Page: 

The highest honor Williston High School can bestow on a student is membership in the National Honor Society. This prestigious organization, which was founded in 1921, has a reputation of excellence. The National Honor Society is a leader among organizations and societies that promote appropriate recognition for students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Membership is thus both an honor and a commitment.

Juniors and Seniors who are scholastically eligible will be considered for membership in the Williston Chapter of the National Honor Society in the fall annually. Members of the school faculty will review completed application forms. Candidates will be selected on the basis of:

  • leadership
  • community service
  • personal character
  • scholarship

After students become members of the National Honor Society, they are reviewed periodically by the faculty counsel and must maintain the high standards of the Society. Active members in the National Honor Society are required to maintain a minimum scholastic average of 3.5 GPA, pay a $10.00 yearly membership fee, complete 10 service hours, and to live up to the character, leadership, and service ideals of the National Honor Society.

National Honor Society meets the second Thursday of each month at 8 a.m. in room 325.
