National Honor Society (NHS)

Philosophy

The Fairview High School chapter of the National Honor Society strives to not only uphold the pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and character, but to apply these values to our community. In the coming year, the National Honor Society hopes to develop a broad base by serving as an umbrella organization for various Fairview clubs and activities with the goal of fostering an integrated and inclusive school community. National Honor Society also plans to aid and enrich the local community through continued service to specific volunteer organizations. Through this work the National Honor Society aims to become an impactful presence on the school and local level, making visible improvements to the community.

Goals

In order to achieve its philosophy, the National Honor Society sets the goals of mentorship, dedication and pride for its members to uphold.

Mentorship

In order to foster an inclusive and unified school community, positive connections between students are valuable. In keeping with the pillars of leadership and character, National Honor Society members are encouraged to help and act as role models to others in their acts of service. Members will engage in school-sponsored service projects that involve working with others.

Dedication

National Honor Society can achieve its mission of meaningfully impacting the community only with the commitment of its members. Members are expected to contribute actively to the chapter by attending meetings and participating in service projects. Moreover, the National Honor Society hopes that members will bring enthusiasm to their work and go beyond what is expected of them.

Pride

Just as National Honor Society hopes to have an impact on the community, it hopes to have an impact on its members. The Fairview High School National Honor Society Chapter hopes that members will find their experiences to be enjoyable and rewarding. Members should take pride in their work and in the Society. This will make the Fairview National Honor Society a connected, reputable organization that will become a powerful presence and foster a lifelong dedication to service.
