Students can find the search and completion of scholarships and opportunities to be a daunting task. Because of this realization, sometimes organizations pop up here and there for the purpose of helping students with pursuing careers, internships, scholarships and any resource they need for success.

The National Society of High School Scholars is one of those organizations, which claims to help advance high schoolers’ goals. Recently, the members chose senior Steven Allen to be a part of the experience. After being selected by an unknown teacher, Allen was invited to an induction ceremony. The ceremony was held over the summer.

“I was a good student in class. I probably wasn’t the only one [the teacher] picked. I probably was just the only one who went to the event. They inducted everyone who went to the event into that society,” Allen said.

The Society claims that it recognizes students who have shown stellar “leadership, scholarship and community commitment.” Its founder and chairman Claes Nobel announced Allen’s acceptance into the organization.

“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Steven has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” Nobel said. “Steven is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”

Allen says he feels good about his accomplishment and hopes to find scholarships. He grasps the purpose of the organization and wants to make the most out of it.

“From what I can tell, this organization is largely about helping you get into college. There are leadership meetings occasionally. They also post scholarship opportunities or make current ones more available,” Allen says.

Members of this organization are inherently members for a lifetime, starting from their initial induction. Step by step, from high school to career, NSHSS provides students with connections and resources such as opportunities to study abroad, leadership development programs, scholarships and more.

“We are proud to provide lifetime membership to young scholars to support their growth and development,” NSHSS President James W. Lewis said. “We aim to help students like Steven build on their academic success by connecting them with unique learning experiences and resources to help prepare them for college and meaningful careers.”
