National Honor Society is more than an honor recognition. The mission of the Luella High School chapter of NHS is to recognize and foster enthusiasm for scholarship, to promote the development of strong character, to encourage positive leadership, and to cultivate responsible citizenship through service to school and community. These four principles shape the organization’s activities and are reflected in the members’ responsibilities and commitment to the LHS and greater communities.Lisa Boyd, NHS Sponsor2012 Georgia Teacher of the Finalist, Ms. Boyd teaches AP English Literature, AP English Language, and AP Capstone (Seminar & Research).
