Gabriella Estrada, a senior at Taylorsville High School, has been selected to become a member of the National Society of High School Scholars. The society recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship, and community commitment.
“On behalf of the NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice, and commitment that Gabriella has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said founder and chairman Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes. “Gabriella is now a member of a unique community of scholars that represents the very best hope for the future.”
Membership in the 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, personalized recognition items and publicity honors.
The organization was formed in 2002 and currently has over one million members in 160 countries.
“We aim to help students like Gabriella build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community,” Society president James W. Lewis said.
