Since 1921, The National Honor Society has served high-school student bodies in the United States by recognizing their academic achievements and by developing other characteristics essential to citizens of a democratic society.

The National Honor Society has helped students build their lives on four pillars—scholarship, character, service, and leadership—with the result that during the past eighty-three years, the National Honor Society has become a prestigious organization. Administrative, faculty, student, and parent commitment has contributed to its impressive reputation.

At EMHS we believe that membership in the National Honor Society is both an honor and a commitment. Membership is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors. Students qualified for selection into the National Honor Society have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above, served as a volunteer both at school and in outside communities, played leadership roles—small or large—and possess impeccable moral character.
