Community service is the foundation of the Socios Chapter of NHS. Students who are not already members of NHS must complete community service as one component of the requirements to be admitted to NHS (Admissions). Once admitted to NHS after their sophomore or junior year, students are required to complete five hours of community service each term during the year. After completing their hours, students fill out a community service form (Community Service Form) which is then turned in to the adviser in the library. Community service hours completed over the summer may be submitted to fulfill the high school graduation requirement but are not eligible for NHS.
