ELLSWORTH, MICHIGAN – The National Honor Society (NHS) has announced that Jaeger Griswold, a high school senior at Ellsworth Community School and member of NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist. Griswold was chosen from nearly 10,000 applicants and will receive a $3,200 scholarship toward higher education.
Since 1946, more than $19 million in scholarships have been awarded to outstanding NHS senior members to support college access and student success. The scholarship program is supported by the parent organization of NHS, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
In the 100 years since NHS was founded in 1921, members have been making a difference in their schools and communities, and the NHS Scholarship is NASSP’s way of recognizing the most exceptional of these student leaders. Recipients are chosen based on their demonstrated work to support the four pillars of NHS: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
At Ellsworth, Jaeger has been a three sport athletete, served as student body president, been a member of SAFE and YAC, and always taken the most rigorous academic courses available.. This fall, he will attend Vanderbilt University.
