National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) officially established NHS in 1921 and continues to support the organization today.  Per the national guidelines and the EHS club charter (last amended, April 2017), candidates for NHS application must be juniors or seniors with a GPA of 3.5 or higher on a college preparatory or honors track.  Applications are considered by the faculty council comprised of teachers and staff from various departments. Those students exhibiting the required service, leadership, and character traits and approved by the faculty council are invited to be members.  This application and induction process occurs each year in September-October of the fall semester.    

National Honor Society is a privilege, not a right.  To maintain good standing, members must continue to demonstrate service, leadership, and character.  Members must also complete other duties as required.  Please note that national guidelines require both a chapter service project and an individual service project each semester.  The chapter service project will be determined by adviser with member input; individual service projects should reflect your particular talents and interests.

Power Lifting Club

Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: squatbench press, and deadlift. Powerlifting evolved from a sport known as "odd lifts", which followed the same three-attempt format but used a wider variety of events, akin to strongman competition. Eventually odd lifts became standardized to the current three. These may be performed equipped or un-equipped (un-equipped is typically referred to as 'raw' lifting). Equipment can include a suit for the squat and deadlift, and supportive shirts for bench press.

            The Elizabethton High School powerlifting team has been in existence since 2009. During that time we have had numerous national and state champions in the USAPL or APF national and state level meets. We also have competed in several local events including the Hampton High School Bench Press and Deadlifting Championships in which the EHS girls have won every single year we have entered and the EHS boys team has won many individual accolades including the “Bob Peoples” award, which is arguably the most prestigious strength award in our community.
