National History Scholars Society:
The NHSS was created in 2009 for the truly outstanding members of each club (as well as the fact that many clubs are Honor Societies). Students who are nominated for the NHSS should meet the following guidelines: B or higher GPA in at least one AP/honors history class, 2+ years in History Club, and recommendation by Advisor based on overall commitment to the Club. Only 4.3% of NHC members last year were inducted into the NHSS. Students who are nominated for the Scholars Society will receive burgundy honor cords to wear at graduation.
Timeline – Please submit nominations (names of students and GPAs) starting in March and continuing through April. Cords will be mailed out on an ongoing basis, and students will be recognized in the Spring Newsletter and on the NHC website. There is a modest fee for the cords (around $1.80 per cord), based on the number of cords requested–happy to provide a breakdown of this upon request.
