National English Honor Society
Moderator: Mr. John Manear
The National English Honor Society (NEHS) is the only international organization exclusively for high school students and faculty who, in the field of English, merit special note for past and current accomplishments. Since 2007, Seton LaSalle's Emily Dickinson Chapter has inducted more than 500 students into the Society membership. Immediate benefits of affiliation include international recognition, scholarship eligibility, and opportunities for international networking with others who share enthusiasm for, and accomplishment in, the language arts. Several of our students have received scholarship awards in essay competitions.
Each year, NEHS sponsors various activities related to English studies, including participation in the Western Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of English annual English Festival, various essay contests, a book sale and collecting books for various local groups.
