National Honor Society™

National Honor Society Pledge
I pledge to uphold the high purposes
of the National Honor Society
to which I have been selected.
I will be true to the principles for which it stands.
And will maintain and encourage
high standards of scholarship, service,
leadership, and character.
Scholarship is a commitment to learning and growing on both a personal and educational path that stems from a desire to contribute to the world in a positive way.
Service is seeking out and engaging in meaningful service voluntarily, not simply doing acts of service to fulfill a program, school, or district requirement, or to collect hours.
Character is valuing diverse cultures and building relationships that reflect love of self but also concern for others. It is about the personal commitment to ethical and compassionate decision making that affects oneself and others.
Leadership is carrying oneself with dignity and taking ownership and responsibility for one’s own actions and participation.
