A student from South Callaway High School was chosen to become a member of The National Society of High School Scholars.
Tenth-grade student Aiden Wetherell of Fulton was chosen to join the society because of his leadership skills, commitment to the community and scholarship within school.
Members of NSHSS are inducted for life after their initial membership. The society will provide Wetherell and other students in NSHSS with resources to develop their strengths and passions as students.
James Lewis, co-founder and president of NSHSS, said in a news release they are proud to welcome Wetherell into the society.
"On behalf of NSHSS and our co-founder Claes Nobel, a member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes, I am honored to recognize the hard work, passion, and commitment that Aiden has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence," Lewis said.
NSHSS was founded in 2002 to recognize students who have achieved academic excellence during their high school careers. The society currently has more than 1.7 million members in more than 170 different countries.
