    Knights Chapter 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 recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. Members within the National Honor Society are celebrated for embodying the four pillars of the organization—service, leadership, scholarship, and character. At the same time, the organization hopes to strengthen and build upon these existing traits in order to prepare these future leaders for college and career.
