ATLANTA, Ga. -- A New Rochelle high school student has been accepted into a prestigious international student organization that celebrates only the top young scholars.
Jayline Arias was recently admitted to The National Society of High School Scholars, or NSHSS, an organization that works to connect and educate outstanding high school students throughout their college and professional careers.
"I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Jayline has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence," said NSHSS Founder and Chairman Claes Nobel. "Jayline is now a member of a unique community of scholars -- a community that represents our very best hope for the future."
James M. Lewis, president of the NSHSS, said those who are admitted to the organization are members for life and that the group provides those members with many of the tools necessary for success.
"We aim to help students like Jayline build on their academic success by connecting them with unique learning experiences and resources to help prepare them for college and meaningful careers," Lewis said.
Founded in 2002, the Atlanta-based NSHSS has over 1 million members across the world and strives to help "advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving millennials" through learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international student and peer networks.
