Greenville Middle School has established a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) to recognize their most outstanding students.

School officials were notified in December that their application to create a local chapter of the honor society had been approved. GMS is the only school in the Butler County School System that has a chapter of the NEHS.

On April 13, 50 fifth and sixth graders were inducted into the honor society.

According to chapter advisor, Dr. Denise Dillard, the honor society is more than just an honor roll.

“It engages its members in service activities and leadership development that help strengthen the programs for all students at the school and improve life in the community.”

Each member of the honor society must have 20 hours of community service.

GMS principal Catherine Tanner said she hopes the new honor society will inspire upcoming fifth graders to work hard so they can become a part of the chapter.
