The purpose of this organization shall be to recognize students for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility, to provide service to the school and community, and to develop leadership skills in the students of elementary schools.
NEHS is structured as follows:
The Chapter Adviser: The chapter adviser shall be a member of the faculty, appointed annually by the principal, and may serve consecutive terms. The chapter adviser shall be responsible for the direct, ongoing administration and supervision of the chapter, its members, and activities, and act as liaison with the faculty, administration, students, and community.
Faculty Council: The faculty council shall consist of the chapter adviser and at least two (2) voting faculty members appointed annually by the principal.
Student Membership: Membership in a local chapter is an honor bestowed upon a student. Selection for membership is by a faculty council and is based on outstanding scholarship and responsibility. Once selected, members have the responsibility to continue to demonstrate these qualities and to participate in chapter activities to build experience and improve skills in leadership and service.
