Wellesley High School earlier this month inducted over 140 juniors and seniors into the the National Honor Society (NHS). The NHS recognizes students for their academic studies and for their service to the community. Principal Jamie Chisum delivered congratulatory remarks, followed by a keynote address by President of New England Revolution soccer, Brian Bilello.
Established in 1921, the country-wide organization is guided by four main purposes: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character.
The Wellesley Chapter of the National Honor Society accepts members on a closed application basis. In order to be eligible to apply students must maintain a Grade Point Average of at least 4.3 for freshman, sophomore, and junior Years. If this requirement is met, students will be notified of eligibility during junior year. More information here about the Wellesley chapter of the NHS.
