Molly Jones and Jacob Weatherly, seniors at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School and members of the Loretto Chapter of the National Honor Society, have been nominated to compete in the National Honor Society scholarship sponsored by the National Association of Secondary Principals (NASSP).
Sue Vaughn, principal, at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School’s high school campus announced the nominations, which places both Jones and Weatherly in the national competition. This year the program will once again award $200,000 in college scholarships. As a feature for the 2008 program, special recognition and additional awards will be presented to state and regional winners, along with the selection of one national recipient who will receive a $13,000 award.
High school National Honor Society chapters from across the country were eligible to nominate two senior high members to compete. Nominees were selected based on their leadership skills, participation in service organizations, clubs, achievements in the arts and sciences, employment experience, and academic record. They were also required to write an essay.
