National Honor Societies at ICS
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
--Lois McMaster Bujold
The National Honor Society at ICS is a club that focuses on service to the community. Members of the ICS NHS participate in numerous individual service projects as well as two required community service projects that we complete as a group. Over the past few years, the ICS NHS has expanded to take on volunteer projects at ICS itself like the Martin Luther King Jr. Assembly, Haunted Hallways fundraiser night, and collaboration with the Taste of ICS. This year, we hope to continue building upon NHS’ existing role to help strengthen our community and nurture our leaders.
Although this agenda may vary depending on the judgment of the executive council, our annual schedule follows a fairly similar pattern from year to year:
- October: Haunted Hallways
- November to December: Winter service project, Taste of ICS
- January: Martin Luther King, Jr. assembly
- February: Submission of applications for prospective members
- March to April: Spring service project, applicants alerted of admission status
- May: Induction ceremony
- June: Election of new executive council
Applying to NHS
Sophomores and juniors interested in admittance to the Phoenix Chapter of the National Honor Society should begin the application process during the month of February.
Applicants must maintain the following requirements:
- Maintain at least a 3.3 Cumulative GPA

Meetings consist of experiments, dissections, films, discussions, guest speakers, and other projects. Outside of meetings, the organization conducts fundraisers and organizes occasional field trips. One of the goals of the organization is to field a team to compete in the Washington State Science Olympiad in March.
