St. Martin’s chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) inducted 29 students as the newest members of the prestigious academic organization on March 31. The annual ceremony took place in the Solomon Theater where more than two dozen Saints were formally inducted into the NHS, increasing the StM chapter’s membership to 62.
The National Honor Society, founded in 1921, is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding students. More than just an honor roll, the NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These attributes have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories, and Canada. Membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but also challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
St. Martin’s NHS members contribute to the school community in many ways. In particular, each member participates in a tutoring program designed to pair NHS members with students from the Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School who have requested academic support. NHS members also pursue their own individual projects in service to St. Martin's and the greater New Orleans community.
It is the policy of St. Martin's Episcopal School to administer its educational programs, including admission and financial aid, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, or disability.
