Recently, Alec Adams, of North Tonawanda, was honored by the National Society of High School Scholars. Adams, a senior at Canisius High School, was recognized as one of the 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 Prize.
"On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Alec has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence," said Nobel. "Alec 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," said NSHSS President James J. Lewis. "We aim to help students like Alec build on their academic success by connecting them with unique 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. 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.
Along with that honor, Adams was honored with The Sage Colleges' "Student Sage" award. The award designates Adams as a "Student Sage Scholar." Recipients are nominated by their high school guidance counselors, teachers, or administrators. Honorees exemplify The Sage Colleges' motto, "To be, to know, to do."
Award winners are guaranteed a minimum of $40,000 in scholarship during the four years of study at Russell Sage College or The Sage College of Albany in recognition of their academic achievements and community involvement.
