National Honor Society

The Ludington High School, Anna Miller Chapter of the National Honor Society

Our local NHS chapter currently requires students to maintain a grade point average of 3.25 or above, serve 15 or more hours of community service, and maintain high standards of character and leadership. Applications are sent out after Thanksgiving to all 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students that have a minimum 3.25 GPA (based on a 4.0 scale). Students are given until January to fill out the application. The Faculty Council of five teachers and the NHS Advisor meet to discuss the applications. Interviews are conducted and the members are chosen. All applicants are sent a letter of acceptance or denial within a week of the interview. Members and applicants have access to NHS information on the NHS Canvas page.

We currently have the following events we host or help supply volunteers to other groups.

  • An Induction Ceremony is held in April. The current NHS members plan and staff the event.

  • The Haunted Fairgrounds are held the last weekend in October at the Western Michigan Fair. We decorate and supply workers to scare, collect donations at the gate, and ride the wagons.

  • American Red Cross Blood Drives are held three times throughout the school year in Hawley Gym. Our members organize and help staff the event. We also run at least one summer blood drive.

  • The Pere Marquette Parent Committee meet once a month and our members provide daycare to the children of attendees.

  • Many craft shows are held during the Christmas season and our members provide manpower to haul crafts in and out of the buildings.

Feel free to contact the NHS advisor, Mrs. Shoop ( ), if your organization needs volunteers or if you have questions about the application process.
