National English Honor Society
The National English Honor Society (NEHS), founded and sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta, is the only national organization exclusively for high school students and faculty who, in the field of English, merit special note for past and current accomplishments. Immediate benefits of affiliation will be national recognition, scholarship eligibility, and opportunities for national networking with others who share enthusiasm for, and accomplishment in, the language arts.
Socastee High’s NEHS chapter is named for the esteemed Mrs. Mildred Shuford, a former SHS English teacher who taught for more than 62 years. Inductees are required to have two English classes at the high school level, a 3.5 GPA in English, an overall 3.0 GPA, and good character.
