About NHS

Hello and welcome to NHS! We are a group of highly-motivated students making Lexington High School and our greater community a better place; throughout the year, we collectively complete thousands of hours of community service.

NHS Council

In January 2021, the National Honor Society created the NHS Council: a group of NHS students working together to plan events and better run the club. Please click below to learn more about the council and its initiatives.



The National Honor Society is run by your student officers Mira Nayak, PJ Gruskin, Sophia Dalal, and Julia Littlewood. Our advisor is Dr. Parul Kumar.

Your leaders are responsible for keeping members informed of upcoming deadlines, projects, and events. If you have any questions about NHS, please email any of your officers and we will help.
