National Honor Society at Eastern High School recognizes students with outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Members must continually exhibit academic achievement, leadership –either overtly or silently, honorable and admirable character, as well as service within the Eastern community. Students with a GPA greater than 3.5 and a clear discipline record are notified during second semester of their sophomore year that they are eligible to apply. Student applications are reviewed and those students recommended are then extended an invitation to Spring Induction.
Eastern’s National Honor Society’s largest and most well-known project is Holiday Care-A-Van. During the weeks between Thanksgiving and winter break, students promote the donation of canned goods and money for the purpose of creating food baskets for those in need; the baskets are delivered by seniors. Other service projects that members participate in are after-school tutoring and the candlelight processional at Graduation.
