FORT MADISON – The National Honor Society (NHS) announced that Nicole Pothitakis, a high school senior at Holy Trinity High School and member of the NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist. Pothitakis was chosen from nearly 7,000 applicants and will receive a $3,200 scholarship toward higher education.
For nearly 100 years, NHS 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 HTC, Pothitakis has served as the NHS President, participated in student council, and served on mission trips to Central America. This fall, she will attend the Impact 360 Program which is a Christian based leadership and service program.
Since 1946, more than $17 million in scholarships has 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).
