Lancaster Mennonite High School National Honor Society is a chapter of the National Honor Society and follows its guidelines. The purpose of this organization is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to encourage service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students at LMHS in ways that support the mission of the school.
Senior and junior students who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 are invited to apply for NHS membership. The faculty is asked to respond with a positive or negative vote for each applicant regarding the student’s fitness in the areas of service, scholarship, leadership and character. The faculty council reviews all the information and decides which students should be inducted by majority vote of the council.
Members maintain Honor Roll status each quarter of membership and continue to demonstrate positive qualities of character, leadership and service. Members also participate regularly in service projects and in other projects.
