ATLANTA, Ga. —The National Society of High School Scholars announced that South Point High School student Beth A. Barnett has been selected for membership.

The society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved academic excellency. The announcement was made by NSIISS 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 Beth has demonstrated to achieve this level of academic excellence. Beth is now a member of a unique community of scholars — a community that represents our very best hope for the future,” Nobel said.

“Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities,” said NSIISS President James Lewis. “We aim to help students like Beth build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community.”

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, online forums, personalized recognition items, and publicity honors.
