The National Honor Society (NHS) was established in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, leadership, service, and character remain as relevant today as they were in 1921.
NHS has become a prestigious organization, ranking high among administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and residents of the school community. Its reputation for excellence is the result of years of commitment on the part of everyone involved. Membership in NHS is a privilege, as well as an honor and a commitment. The member exhibits excellence in academics and leadership, honorable and admirable character, and demonstrates a commitment to service- all of which indicate that the member is willing to use personal talents and skills for the improvement of both self and society.The Post High School Chapter of the National Honor Society was established in December 1957, charter number 6748, and has been active since that time
