Tiye Jones Amen Hetep, a sophomore at Rolesville High School, has been selected to become a member of The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). The Society recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship and community commitment. The announcement was made by NSHSS Founder and Chairman Claes Nobel, senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes.
“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice, and commitment that Tiye has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said Mr. Nobel. “Tiye is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”
The NSHSS President, James W. Lewis, stated, “We are proud to provide lifetime membership to young scholars to support their growth and development. We aim to help students like Tiye build on their academic success by connecting them with unique learning experiences and resources to help prepare them for college and meaningful careers.”
NSHSS members become lifetime members. At each step along the way – from high school to college to career – NSHSS connects outstanding young scholars with the resources they need to develop their strengths and pursue their passions.
“It’s really an honor to be chosen and accepted into the society. It really means a lot, and it shows me that the hard work I put in is not going unnoticed,” Tiye said.
The NSHSS recognizes academic excellence at the high school level and helps to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving millennials through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study and peer networks. Currently, there are more than 1,000,000 Society members in 160 countries.
