The National Honor Society (NHS) was founded in 1921 to recognize students who embody the ideals of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Every year, FRA invites sophomores, juniors, and seniors who meet the academic and service requirements to apply. Following the application and review process, students are selected for membership. New members are responsible for continuing to demonstrate scholarship, leadership, character, and service. This year, we inducted a talented group of 33 students.
