Do NHS members receive graduation cords?

This might be looking a bit too far ahead, but do members of the National Honor Society usually get a special cord or something similar for graduation?

7 months ago

Absolutely, being a part of the National Honor Society (NHS) is quite an achievement, and it's common for schools to recognize this milestone. Members typically do receive a graduation cord, often in the NHS's signature colors. It's a symbolic way to denote your academic success and commitment to service.

However, I must mention that the policies can vary from one school to another. The best thing to do is to check with your specific high school's NHS advisor or the school's guidance office. They will be able to tell you about the specific honors given to NHS members at your graduation ceremony.

If your school does offer cords, they will also inform you about how and when you can receive yours. So, make sure to ask about it ahead of time to ensure you can proudly showcase your NHS membership at your graduation!
