A Greenwood High School senior was recently selected to join the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS).

Shavannah Lafaye Quinn, daughter of Christopher and Pamela Quinn of Greenwood, joins the organization, which recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated a commitment to leadership, academics and their community.

The announcement was made in Atlanta by the organization’s founder and chairman, Claes Nobel, who is a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prize.

“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Shavannah has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said Nobel. “Shavannah is now a member of a unique community of scholars — a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”

NSHSS members become lifetime members. At 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.

“We aim to help students like Shavannah build on their academic success by connecting them with unique learning experiences and resources to help prepare them for college and meaningful careers,” said NSHSS President James W. Lewis.
