Watertown-Mayer’s National Honor Society is a carefully selected group of students who are leaders in our school and community and are dedicated to service. W-M NHS takes pride in the work we do to serve our community as a group. This past year NHS sponsored the Tackle Cancer event raising over $1000 for the cause. NHS students organized a Parent’s Night Out where childcare was provided free of charge for an evening with great activities for children ages 3-11. The NHS has a goal of one service project per quarter as a group and all members complete at least 25 hours of community service over the course of the year. The goal is to provide service for the community and to bring service opportunities to other students at Watertown-Mayer High School.
Eligible students for the National Honor Society (NHS) are required to have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.3 or higher and be in grades 10-12. These students are encouraged to apply for membership at the beginning of the second semester of each school year. Once students apply, teachers rate them on leadership, service, and character. The Faculty Council, which is comprised of high school faculty members, examine each student's application and ratings to make the final selection. The new members are notified and inducted at a banquet in the spring.
