An organization that is supposed to honor high school students for their academic achievements, community service, leadership, and character. However, this has greatly changed in the present day, as it essentially honors students that the teachers of the school like for any reason at all.
Girl One: Did you hear that Sally got into National Honor Society?
Girl Two: Yeah! It's only cause the NHS sponsor is her basketball coach, and she always wears short skirts to his class.
Girl One: I know, right? I didn't get in. But whatever, let's go study calculus, feed the homeless, and create an organization to end world hunger!
Girl Two: I didn't get in either. But sounds like fun! Let's go!

Guy One: Did you hear that Billy got into National Honor Society?
Guy Two: Shut up, I'm trying to do my AP Physics, only one more problem until I've completed all the work for the semester.
Guy One: Holy crap! Did you get into NHS?
Guy Two: No, I don't play sports, I don't have time after volunteering in my community, getting a 4.0GPA, and being a mentor to underprivileged children in Africa.
Guy One: That sucks, man!

An exclusive club open to students who have at least a B+ average. About 99% of the people in NHS could honestly care less about the club itself and the only reason they joined in the first place is because they know they have good grades and just want it to look good on a college application. These people on NHS could care less about helping the school and their community as long as they can use being on NHS to get into a good college/university. However, there actually, usually is one or two students on NHS who actually join it out of the goodness of their hearts.
Girl 1: We have to feed soup to the homeless tonight? Ew!
Girl 2: Yeah, it's for National Honor Society. I hate this club so much, but at least it will look good for college!

Girl 1: Yeah.
