The purpose of this organization shall be to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. Membership in local chapters is an honor bestowed upon a student. Selection for membership is by a Faculty Council and is based on outstanding Scholarship, Character, Leadership, and Service. At Oostburg High School, we believe selection to N.H.S. is the highest honor of recognition we have to offer. This honor recognizes the “whole person”, not just the student component.
