National Honor Society

Welcome to National Honor Society


Goddard High School's Lionian Chapter of National Honor Society hosts two major events for the school.

In the fall, NHS welcomes new members in a ceremony on the first Monday of November.  Candidates for membership are invited to petition for membership based on a weighted or unweighted GPA.  Candidates submit a Letter of Petition, Resume, and two Letters of Recommendation.  Petitions are reviewed for the four pillars of NHS: Character, Scholarship, Leadership, & Service.  All candidates who meet the standards are selected for membership. Accepted candidates are invited to the dinner and initiation ceremony.

In the spring, NHS hosts the Senior Honors Night. Seniors are recognized for their dedication and achievements in academic and activities. NHS hosts a cake and punch reception after the ceremony.

Members also participate in numerous volunteer activities during their membership years. Some of the organizations and activities where we have volunteered are: Wichita Habitat for Humanity, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, American Cancer Society, Wichita Children's Home, Ronald McDonald House, Goddard Lions Club Fall Festival, Goddard Area Fall Food Drive, Goddard Area Mitten Tree, Tanganyika Wildlife Park.
