The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) recently announced Meadowdale High School student Henry “Quint” Turner from Edmonds, WA, has been selected to become a member of the esteemed organization. The Society 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 Henry has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said Nobel. “Henry is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”
“Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities,” stated NSHSS President James W. Lewis. “We aim to help students like Henry build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community.”
This academic year, Turner will complete his studies at Meadowdale, where he is sports editor for the Maverick newspaper. In his spare time he provides local sports coverage for My Edmonds News, a position he has held since he was fourteen-years-old.
