The NHS chapter of Tennessee High School has four primary objectives:

To create an enthusiasm for scholarship.

  To promote leadership.

  To develop character.

Selection of students for membership in the National Honor Society is the responsibility of the faculty council, a five-member board composed of teachers appointed by the principal. The following selection procedures, approved by the NHS National Council, are used in selecting members for the Tennessee High School Chapter of the National Honor Society:

The candidate must be a junior or senior who has attended THS the equivalent of one term and has a cumulative scholastic average of at least 93 percent. The cumulative scholastic average for juniors will be based on their freshman and sophomore grades, and for seniors, it will be based on their freshman, sophomore, and junior grades.  Eligible students will be asked to complete a Student Activity Information Form (SAIF) on which to list and describe activities, both in school and out of school, that demonstrate service, leadership, and character. (The student must complete this form to be considered for membership; however, completion of the form does not guarantee selection.) Students will be evaluated by the faculty council on the qualities of leadership, character, and service. The faculty council (composed of five teachers appointed by the principal) will use both the SAIF and the faculty council evaluations in considering the students to be selected. Students will be selected based on a majority vote.
