The mission of the National Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of OMHS. All Juniors and Seniors with a cumulative 3.40 (weighted) GPA or higher are considered for NHS at the beginning of the school year. The students fill out a Student Activity Information Form and are evaluated on the basis of Service, Leadership, and Character. Once inducted, NHS members are expected to participate in both individual and group service activities, uphold the four pillars of NHS, and attend all meetings.
Meeting times: The third Wednesday of each month during Scorp Time.
