Become A Member

National Honor Society (NHS) is more than just an honor roll. The The Dr. Roberta K. Gaines Chapter of the NHS has established rules for membership that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.
Membership is found in our By Laws under Article II: Membership.  Please follow the link to the By Laws - click here.
Summary of the Membership Process:
  • (September / October) NHS Advisors contact students in grades 11-12 with a 3.5 or higher cumulative GPA - These students are now considered candidates for membership.
  • Candidates will receive a letter welcoming them as a "candidate" for NHS membership and a  Student Activity Information Form (SAIF).
