The National English Honor Society (NEHS) is the only international organization exclusively for high school students and faculty who, in the field of English, merit special note for past and current accomplishments. Calvary Christian high school students are invited to help begin this club by petitioning for our own local chapter, through which individuals may be inducted into Society membership. Benefits include international recognition, scholarship eligibility, and opportunities for international networking with others who share an enthusiasm for, and accomplishment in, the language arts.
The NEHS motto, "gelast sceal mid are," is Old English for: "duty goes with honor." The motto represents one of the earliest forms of our language—it affirms and celebrates an obligation to use one's gifts in service to others. Service to peers, school, and community is part and parcel of the NEHS mission—and, indeed, in the grammatical structure of the Old English phrase, "duty" actually precedes "honor."
Calvary students interested in the NEHS will work to establish this club and its influence in our school culture and on our local community.
