National Elementary Honor Society
The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) was established in 2008 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in partnership with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP). NEHS recognizes students in both public and nonpublic elementary schools for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility. Through NEHS, students provide meaningful service to the school and community and develop essential leadership skills. NEHS supports these purposes by strengthening the lives of our nation’s elementary students and the schools in which they are enrolled. (NEHS, www.nehs.org/about/)
The Mabel Padgett Elementary Chapter of NEHS candidates are identified based on grades from their report cards during their fourth grade year and are invited to apply for membership consideration. These invitations are sent out and the application process occurs during the spring of the school year.
Members of the Mabel Padgett Elementary Chapter of NEHS are expected to attend chapter meetings, volunteer by completing individual hours, volunteer by completing group/chapter service hours, and maintain a good academic standing.
