NHS is changing the process for membership. There are several reasons for implementing these new procedures for NHS membership at SHS. Mainly, we wanted a more objective, succinct process that has concrete qualifications. Names of the students meeting the qualifications and turning in completed forms on time with no excuses will be reviewed by a committee of teachers/administrators. All new members will be tapped in April.
Post 2020 NHS Process
This process will be implemented gradually.*
