NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY

  • More than just an honor roll, National Honor Society serves to honor students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

  • STOLES FOR 2020 GRADUATION

    Stoles for the 2020 Graduation will be made available at the graduation ceremony.

     

    The NHS stole used by Hardin Valley Academy is a white satin pendant stole.


    If you would like to purchase your stole, you may do so in one of two ways:

    1: You can purchase the stole by online payment, under the HVA website family tab. I will have a list of those who make payments at graduation, and you will receive the stole prior to the ceremony.

    2: You can order the stole from the National Honor Society ( www.nhs.us ) Once you order the stole from the NHS website, I go in and verify your membership status.  Be aware that if you order it from NHS, it may not arrive in time. So, order ASAP!
