National Honor Society

"The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service."

Cotter students are invited to apply if they are at least a 2nd Semester sophomore, junior, or senior student with 3.5 GPA.

A faculty committee of 5 reads all applicants information and essays regarding their involvement in classes, school and community. Students include ideas about the 4 hallmarks of the organization. If accepted they are inducted to the organization at our annual leadership prayer service in the Spring.
