"The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP)
officially established NHS in 1921. Though many local and regional
honor societies existed prior to 1921, no nationwide organization
had been founded. Under the leadership of Dr. Edward Rynearson,
principal of the Fifth Avenue High School in Pittsburgh, the
organization grew from the original Alpha Chapter at the Fifth
Avenue School to more than 1,000 chapters by 1930. Equipped with a
constitution, an emblem and motto, and a group of dedicated
principals as coordinators, the new NHS organization quickly
developed into one of the country's leading educational groups."
