Mt. Carmel School student Keona A. Camacho was recently selected to become a member of The National Society of High School Scholars, which recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship, and community commitment. The announcement was made 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 Keona demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said Nobel. “Keona is now a member of a unique community of scholars—a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”
Camacho is the daughter of Daniel Camacho and Roxanne Diaz, who expressed happiness at their daughter’s accomplishment.
“As parents, we are always proud of our children’s accomplishments and in this token, we are extremely proud of our daughter for achieving this great milestone in her life. As she matures in life, I’m hopeful that this achievement will propel her to do extraordinary things for herself and her community,” said Daniel Camacho.
“I always tell my daughter that hard work pays off. Things may be difficult at times, but the difficulty is a test to prove that you can overcome it. And when you do, that will tell you that nothing is impossible. Only you can make it happen. We love you and we will be there to guide you along the path to success,” 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, personalized recognition item, and publicity honors.
“Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities,” said NSHSS president James W. Lewis. “We aim to help students like Keona build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community.”
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, visions, and potential for the betterment of themselves and the world. Currently there are more than 1 million Society members in over 160 countries. NSHSS provides scholarship opportunities for deserving young people.
