About NCHS Hudson Chapter
The National Chinese Honor Society (NCHS) was established in 1993 to recognize those accomplished high school students who study Chinese as a world language. The National Chinese Honor Society is a scholastic organization that promotes and recognizes students who demonstrate citizenship, leadership, and community service. The purpose of the National Chinese Honor Society is to encourage its members to become life-long learners in order to gain a better understanding of Chinese language and culture, as well as to play an active role as a contributing global citizen in the twenty-first century. The NCHS Hudson Chapter was established in 2013.
The applicant must be a full time high school student (grades 9 – 12) who has studied Chinese for four semesters in high school with an average of B or higher. A qualified candidate is someone who is willing to work with the school chapter advisor, as well as with other students, to serve as a positive role model in the area of Chinese studies.
The advisor is in charge of the induction, membership eligibility, and supervise NCHS activities. The advisor is also responsible for appointing the student president of their chapter based on his/her consistent and positive role in advocating the learning of Chinese language and culture. The student president of the local school chapter of the Chinese Honor Society must be appointed by the sponsor based on his/her consistent and positive effort in learning the Chinese language.
