Georgetown High School National Honor Society
March 23, 2020 Update: Because we are unsure of when we will return to school the spring service requirement for the spring of 2020 was been waived. What does this mean? If you are a senior currently in good standing you will graduate with NHS Honors. If you are a junior or sophomore currently in good standing you will remain in good standing when you start the 2020-2021 school year. If you have any questions please email Julia Hodgson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2019 Induction Ceremony will be on November 14, 2019, at 6:00 pm at the GISD Performing Arts Center (PAC). Reception following the induction ceremony. Guest speaker for the induction ceremony will be Ben McCready
