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.
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.
