National Honor Society wins 8th Outstanding Chapter Award

Old Colony Chapter of the National Honor Society has been selected as a recipient of an Outstanding Chapter Award for the sixth year in a row. The Massachusetts Secondary School Administrators Association State NHS Committee presents this award to local chapters for “exemplifying the true spirit of National Honor Society ideals through demonstration of outstanding scholarship, leadership, character and service.”

This is the eighth Outstanding Chapter Award for the Old Colony chapter in the last ten years. The chapter has also received seven National Service Awards.

The Chapter received the award at the NHS State Leadership Conference held at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts on April 10, 2007. The conference was held for advisors and students of local chapters. Workshops were held on such topics as Time Management, Surviving Freshman Year at College, The Importance of Credit, and Creative Fundraising.
