The Whitewater High School National Honor Society was established in 1956 to create enthusiasm for scholarship, promote worthy leadership, stimulate a desire to render service, and encourage the development of character in our student body. Members are recognized each year for their exceptional achievements, integrity, helpful personality, and ability to influence others in a positive way. NHS has become a prestigious organization, ranking high among college admission officers, scholarship committees, high school administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and residents of our community. For many, selection as a member of the National Honor Society is the pinnacle of achievement in school. This honor, recognized throughout the nation, is both the public recognition of outstanding accomplishments and the private commitment to continued excellence on the part of each member.
NHS activities are fun, inspiring, and help make our school, community, and world a better place. Meetings are lead by elected officers and collaborative decision-making is encouraged. Members use their creative ideas, leadership, and organizational skills to promote worthy projects. They organize events that raise money for numerous charities such as the American Cancer Society and the WHS Family Emergency Fund. They help the environment by recycling computer ink cartridges and cell phones through the Green School Project. National Honor Society members inspire others by tutoring, mentoring and rewarding others by serving ice cream sundaes to students working hard in the tutorial program. They encourage their peers to save lives by giving blood and brighten the holidays for Whitewater residents by delivering Holiday Fruit Baskets to people who receive Meals on Wheels. They also help senior citizens in Whitewater by participating in Car Care Day for Seniors.
We encourage all students at Whitewater High School to learn more about the National Honor Society, set high standards for achievement and behavior, and work hard each year to accomplish exceptional educational goals.
