SALUTE: Veterans National Honor Society

Service, Academics, Leadership, Unity, Tribute, Excellence

Our values are the foundation blocks of our honor society and the basis of your success. Penn State Schuylkill has been a chapter member since 2017.


An act of helpful activity or selflessness, help, and aid. The service member who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect their county and do good service for their sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.

" You can start from this day forward to apply the habit of going the extra mile by always rendering more service."


A scholar or teacher in an institute of higher education, concerned with the pursuit of research, education, and scholarship. True scholars humbly acknowledge that learning is a continuing process and are keenly aware of the level of dedication necessary to succeed in all areas of life. Whether it's sports, academics, or your relationship. It all stems from finding that fun, that thrill, that excitement of the pursuit of knowledge.

"Whatever you are doing, do it with all your might, give 100% – always. Find that fun, that thrill, that excitement in the pursuit of knowledge..."


The activity of influencing people to cooperate in achieving some common goal or objective. The quality to pull together as one, to contribute while retaining their uniqueness as individuals.


The state of being one; oneness; a thing forming a complex whole; being connected together for the good of the country and community.


Acknowledgment of the valuable consideration paid by one to another, in the price of peace, security, and protection. 

"The greatest thrill that life offers is to create, to construct, to develop something useful. Too often we fail to recognize and pay tribute to the creative spirit. It is that spirit that creates our jobs".


The state of excelling, if you are going to achieve excellence in the big things, develop the habits in little matters. Excellence is not an expression, it is a prevailing attitude.
