Welcome to NHS! Please visit our website for up to date information! 

The Jeanne Griffin Chambers Chapter of the National Honor Society is an extremely active member of the RHS community. NHS is open to all seniors who meet various qualifications in relation to scholarship, leadership, service and character.

Throughout the year, our students complete a variety of service projects ranging from raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to buying gifts for less fortunate children at Christmas. Yearly, the members of the NHS decide which projects they would like to participate in.

We are nationally affiliated with NHS and our students have an opportunity to compete for the NHS scholorship, which in the scholarship provided up to $10,000 in awards. More NHS informaiton can be found at

An induction ceremony occurs the spring before the student's senior year. All students who qualify will receive an application that explains the induction process in detail.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if there are any questions!


The National Honor Society is a distinguished organization that seeks to recognize students for their dedication to, and excellence in scholarship, leadership, character, and community service.
