Current Chapter Members:
When the National Honor Society was founded in 1921, the hope of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) was to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics that are essential to citizens in a democracy. The ideals of scholarship, character, service and leadership remain as relevant today as they were in 1921. The NASSP believes that the National Honor Society has made a positive impact on the lives of individuals and on the spirit of community and school.
Honor Society members have exhibited academic achievement, leadership, honorable and admirable character, as well as service that demonstrates that the member is willing to use talents ans skills for the improvement of society. Throughout the NHS chapter service activities, members maintain and extend the qualities that won them selection. Thus, membership into the Bethel High School chapter of The National Honor Society is both and honor and a commitment.
