National Honor Society

Welcome to the website of the Southwest Chapter of National Honor Society! NHS is a service-based organization where members work to improve our community through community service and volunteerism.

Here at Southwest, we perform a number of important activities:

  • we collect recycling bins once a week from all of the classrooms,
  • we set up, volunteer at, and run at least 3 blood drives each year,
  • we volunteer at charities that help out in our community, such as Loaves and Fishes, as well as charities that work to improve the world, such as Feed My Starving Children,
  • we run the annual Sadie's Dance sometime in late fall or early winter,
  • and we work overall and as much as possible to make our community the best it can be.

More information can be found on the national NHS website.

Our methods of providing information include:

  • this website
