• Welcome to the Morcohi Chapter of the National Honor Society.

    Members of the National Honor Society are devoted to serving their community through service, leadership, scholarship, and character.  Our group consists of the best and brightest NHS students at Hartselle High School- each one with high marks in the four qualities listed above.

    The Morcohi Chapter participates in many annual service events.  

    Individually, members of the NHS volunteer at soup kitchens, at our local elementary schools, at churches, and many local community civic events.

    New members of the National Honor Society who meet specific criteria are contacted during the Fall semester of their junior (and in some cases, senior) year of high school and are inducted shortly after.

    Being a member of the National Honor Society is a great honor. Underclassmen should strive to maintain good grades, take advanced courses, demonstrate good leadership, and volunteer in their community in order to be recognized as a prospect and have the opportunity to be inducted.
