A senior student of Marianas High School recently received national honor after being accepted to the National Society of High School Scholars.
Glorily Iida Williams, 18, was recognized for her scholastic achievements and excellent academic records in high school. She is the daughter of Timothy and Rumi Williams.
The national society recognized top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved superior academic excellence. Williams' membership to the prestigious organization was announced by NSHSS founder and chairman Claes Nobel, a 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 Glorily has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence. Glorily is now a member of a unique community of scholars-a community that represents our very best hope for the future,” stated Nobel in her letter to the student.
According to the society's president, James Lewis, 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 Glorily build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community,” he added.
Formed in 2002, the national society 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. There are more than 800,000 scholar members in over 160 countries at present.
Membership in the society entitles qualified students to enjoy a wide variety of benefits, including scholarship opportunities, academic competitions, free events, members-only resources, publications, participation in programs offered by educational partners, among others.
