    Check an agency's non-profit status here:





    Registered non-profits qualify. Please limit hours to four (4) from each agency per semester UNLESS hours are capped at 1, 2, or 3 for certain opportunities that we share. For example, we have a request from a middle school for assistance with their writing lab for (1) hour on one day this month. If there were 5 one-hour labs this semester, the student could only count 4 hours because it is the same school. The purpose of the limits of this type is to encourage diversity in service.

    The National Honor Society chapter of Elkins High School is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in four areas of evaluation: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Students are selected for membership by majority vote of a five-member faculty council, which bestows this honor upon qualified students on behalf of the faculty of our school each spring.


    Students in grades 11 and 12 are eligible for membership. For the scholarship criterion, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 85 on the 100-point scale. Each fall, those students who meet this criterion are invited to complete a Candidate Form that provides the faculty council with information regarding the candidate’s leadership and service.  


    Also, candidates will complete eight (8) hours of approved community service between August 2023 and November 10, 2023,  prior to induction into the EHS National Honor Society.


    To evaluate a candidate’s character, the faculty council uses two forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed prior to candidacy AND again days before the induction ceremony. Second, members of the faculty are solicited for input regarding their professional reflections on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership. NO FACULTY LETTERS, PLEASE!


    Any solicited faculty input and all Candidate Forms are carefully reviewed by the faculty council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection. Candidates are notified regarding selection or nonselection according to a predetermined schedule. Following notification, a formal induction ceremony is held at the school to recognize all the newly selected members. The faculty council’s decisions are deemed final.


    New members shall pay annual fee of $32.00 ($20 dues and $12 t-shirt) by a pre-determined time. Senior inductees shall pay $10 dues and $24.00 for the NHS honor stole. Senior inductees are not required to purchase a t-shirt, but they may do so for $12.00. Note: extended sizes may incur an additional fee of $1 per "X."

     Once inducted, new members are required to maintain the same level of performance (or better) in all four criteria that led to their selection.
