Local student Jazmyn Perritt receives national honor

Special to The Clinton Courier


The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) recently announced that student Jazmyn Perritt of Clinton has been selected to become a member of the organization. The Society recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship and community commitment. The announcement was made by NSHSS Co-founder and President James W. Lewis.

“On behalf of NSHSS and our co-founder Claes Nobel, a member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes, I am honored to recognize the hard work, passion, and commitment that Jazmyn has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said Lewis. “Jazmyn is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future. We are proud to provide lifetime membership to young scholars to support their growth and development. We help students like Jazmyn build on their academic success by connecting them with learning experiences and resources to help prepare them for college and meaningful careers.”

NSHSS members automatically become lifetime members at the time of their initial membership. 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.
