- 1st semester – January 31, 2019 @ 3:45 p.m. to room 144
- 2nd semester: Seniors – April 25, 2019 (3:45 p.m.); Juniors – June 6, 2019 (3:45 p.m.)
You may log service completed any time after June 6, 2018
- Each NHS member must complete 10 service hours per year (a minimum of 5 must be completed by first semester.) Properly and fully completed Service Project Logs are to be turned in to Mrs. Dalton (144) no later than the due date. You are encouraged to turn it in early.
- Service Projects are defined by the following criteria:
- they benefit a public school, hospital, or nonprofit (officially tax-exempt) organization and are in keeping with the standards of NHS: leadership, citizenship, scholarship, service, and character
- they are volunteer – they are not paid and/or you do not receive a discount in return for service
- no double-dipping – service hours completed as a requirement for another Hickory High School organization may not be used to meet NHS service requirements.
- service projects may be completed anytime between June 7, 2017 and the due date
- all service projects must be validated by signature or an attached letter or they will not be recorded; your parent may not validate – it must be the project sponsor or beneficiary
- SENIORS: you are required to serve at fall fundraiser in November, and this will count as two hours of your ten total required. You must sign in at that fundraiser to receive credit.
- A limited number of other NHS-sponsored service projects at Hickory High School will be available throughout the year and posted on the NHS board, but for the most part, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SEEKING OUT SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES THAT MEET YOUR OWN INTERESTS AND SCHEDULE.
- NHS members who do not turn in properly completed service logs which meet the requirements by the due date will not remain in good standing, and will not retain the privileges accorded to NHS members in good standing, including wearing the stole and cord at graduation.
