National Honor Society Pledge: 


I pledge myself to uphold

The high purposes of the National Honor Society

To which I have been selected

I will be true to the principals for which it stands

I will be loyal to my school;

And will maintain and encourage

High standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character

At Mt. Vernon High School and in my community. 

 

Purpose

 

The four main purposes of NHS are:  to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.  Giving back with community service teaches the students that they can make a difference by helping others.
