The National Honor Society is composed of forty-four junior and senior members who continue to carry on the guiding principles of the National Honor Society: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month. Each member is required to complete two additional community service hours of his or her choice. The Society completes at least one service project per month.

Within the 2012-2013 school year, we have completed the following service projects:
- We raised about $1,500 for the March of Dimes. The final amount is yet to be verified by the March of Dimes.
- We shipped 83.5 pounds of candy, toothbrushes and toothpaste to Operation Gratitude in Van Nuys, California, to support their care package assembly program. Thank you to Mrs. Janelle Sprandel for her generous monetary donation that allowed us to participate in this program.
- We raised $153.50 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. Thanks for your support!
- We collected toys for Toys for Tots.
- We donated the donations for gift wrapping at a local bookstore in December to the House of Peace, a battered women's shelter in Clermont County.
- Our January children's book drive collected over 500 books for the Half Pint Library at Children's Hospital! Thanks for your support!
- In March we sold candy grams to offset the medical costs of baby Ava, a hospitalized infant of a local family. We raised $116 to become part of Ava's Army.
- We raised about $1,500 for the March of Dimes.
- We collected, cut, and mailed about fifty pounds of coupons to Coups for Troops.
We raised enough money to purchase a brick in the brick walk at the Victory Junction Gang Camp, a camp located in Randelman, North Carolina, that services terminally ill children. The camp directors sent us a picture of the brick. Please click the link below for more information about VJGC.

Goshen High School is now a drop off site for Coups for Troops, a nonprofit organization that takes donated new and expired grocery coupons and sends them to military families overseas. Those families may use coupons that have expired at the base commissary for up to six months past the expiration date. Simply clip unwanted grocery coupons(not restaurant coupons) or donate expired coupons. Donate in the box marked "Coups for Troops" in the high school main office or give to Mrs. Deuer in A216. This is an ongoing project, so please keep clipping those coupons. Thanks! Please click on the website for more information. http://www.coupsfortroops.com/.
So far we have mailed about 100 pounds of coupons to military families in Japan and Italy.
We also collect Tyson Project A+ Labels for Education. Each label is worth $.24. Please click the link for more information. Tyson Project A+
