“In a way, NHS has a lot in common with
farming," he said. "The German word for learning
is ‘to cultivate.' And that is what all NHS

Indeed, being inducted is no small feat; to be
inducted and remain in NHS, members must
maintain a GPA of 3.25, exhibit exemplary
behavior, and perform community service.

short speeches on leadership and service while
candles were lit for all the members present.
Afterwards, with each person holding a candle,
the inductees were asked to step forward, recite
the NHS Oath and sign the Chapter’s Register.

of 51 students in the Bonners Ferry High School
