National Honor Society

Bishop Grimes Chapter of the National Honor Society

Selection for membership is based on outstanding scholarship, character, leadership, and service.Leadership is based on the student’s participation in school and community activities. To meet the service requirement, students must be active in service projects in the school and in the community. Character is measured in terms of integrity, behavior, ethics, and cooperation with both students and faculty.
