Dermott High School student Quincy A. Jones has been selected for membership in the National Society of High School Scholars, according to the Society’s founder and chairman, Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes.

The Society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved academic excellence.

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

NSHSS President James Lewis said the organization’s vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities. “We aim to help students like Quincy build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community,” he added.

Membership in NSHSS entitles qualified students to enjoy a wide variety of benefits, including scholarship opportunities, academic competitions, free events, member-only resources, publications, participation in programs offered by educational partners, online forums, personalized recognition items, and publicity honors.

Formed in 2002, The National Society of High School Scholars recognizes academic excellence at the high school level and encourages members of the organization to apply their unique talents, vision, and potential for the betterment of themselves and the world. Currently, there are more than 530,000 Society members in over 160 countries. NSHSS provides scholarship opportunities for deserving young people.
