This ceremony held each November honors the academic accomplishments of select National Honor Society (NHS) Students from the five high schools in St. Mary’s County. Students selected for the award are given a book relevant to their field of interest. Also during the ceremony, we recognize St. Mary’s sophomores whose academic performance is on a path that may make them eligible for induction in Phi Beta Kappa during their junior or senior year.
