Regalia for Commencement

Part of the honor of being an NHS scholar is your stole. The NHS Stole, which is a pearl white color stole with the NHS logo in blue and gold is an honor that has been reserved for the select few who work hard enough to be members of the NHS.

You can borrow a stole from LHS NHS, which you must return directly after graduation.

You may also purchase a brand-new stole, which is yours to keep, from Mrs. Loth in the Cashier’s office for $27.00 by cash, check, or credit card. You MUST have been selected for NHS membership prior to purchasing a stole. Purchase of stole does NOT guarantee eligibility to wear stole during commencement ceremonies – stoles are reserved for members of NHS who are considered to be in good standing with our school and NHS.

Stoles will be handed out the week before and the week of finals in May. If you wish to have yours early because of photographs, please contact Mr. West individually to ask about this. If you are purchasing one, you must pay before picking up your stole.

The honor of wearing the NHS Stole is not automatic with membership in NHS. In order to be eligible to wear your stole during commencement, you must meet the following requirements (officers have higher requirements):

  1. Participation in NHS service projects that are designed and carried out (or endorsed) by LHS National Honor Society.
  2. Regular attendance at monthly meetings.
  3. Exemplary behavior throughout the entirety of the 2021-2022 school year.
  4. Maintain grades that align with the NHS requirements for grades and GPAs.
*The stoles do not change from year to year, so if you have a stole that an older sibling has worn, you are welcome to wear it, as long as it’s the same as the stoles that we currently use.
