Who we are:
This organization seeks to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in students of secondary schools. To this end, we hold offices in other school clubs, we lead the campus Heart Walk for the American Heart Association, we tutor and serve all faculty and staff to the betterment of Quest and Quest students.
Membership is based on application by students who feel they meet the requirements listed in the documents on this website.
This chapter seeks to initiate students who have completed at least three semesters of high school and at least one semester at Quest, who have achieved a cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale to include ALL course work be it college or high school (no middle school course grades count for GPA or semesters) and who do not incur any behavioral referrals.
Members will complete five service sessions each semester they are an active member.
Second semester sophomores who wish to join may apply by February 1. Applications for membership will be processed and applicants notified within two weeks. Once notified of their acceptance, applicants will pay the $5 Initiation Fee to complete the application process. Initiation will then take place for all accepted applicants who have paid their fee, between February 15 and March 15. After initiation, initiates become full members with voting rights and will pay the Annual Dues ($16) in the Fall of the next academic year, and any subsequent years, to remain a member. Non-payment of dues indicates the person no longer wishes to be a member. The member will no longer list NHS on a resume, and will return any insignia, clothing, or other such with the NHS logo.
Upperclassmen who wish to join may submit the application, GPA, and the required Faculty Recommendations in the Fall Semester each year, until September 15 or join the incoming Sophomore members during the Spring application period. Fall applicants will be notified by Oct. 15. Once notified of their acceptance, the applicant should pay the $5 Initiation Fee AND the $15 Annual Dues. Once these fees are paid, the applicant will be given a certificate of membership and will be considered a member for the academic year.
Non-payment of dues indicates the person no longer wishes to be a member. The member will no longer list NHS on a resume, and will return any insignia, clothing, or other such with the NHS logo.
