Student Council

The NPHS Student Council leads and represents the student body, acts as a liaison with the administration and faculty and sponsors service projects and social activities for NPHS stu-dents. To participate in Student Council, students must have a 2.0 G.P. A. and submit applications prior to elections held in the spring. Juniors may run for the officer positions.

NPHS Student Council is comprised of at least 31 members. Sometimes more if we have students serving as district/state officers or foreign exchange students.

  • 4 officers
  • 7 seniors
  • 7 juniors
  • 7 sophomores
