A 15-year old Yoruba girl, Oyinkansola Ewedemi has become the youngest to join the prestigious National Society of High School Scholars, NSHSS. The highly respected institution was founded by scholars all over the world including from the Nobel family whose initiative led to the Nobel Price.

Her life ambition is to study Aerospace Engineering as an Engineering Major.

The NSHSS community is based in Atlanta, United States.

The co-founder and President, NSHSS, James Lewis, praised Ewedemi for his non-stop high Grade Point Average throughout her high school career.

He is currently with James Martin High School in Arlington, Texas, United States.

Traditionally, NSHSS recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship, and community commitment.

“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 Oyinkansola has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence.

He said Oyinkansola is now a member of a unique community of scholars, a community that represents the very best hope for the future.

“We are proud to provide lifetime membership to young scholars to support their growth and development.
We help students like Oyinkansola build on their academic success by connecting them with learning experiences and resources to help prepare them for college and meaningful careers,” Lewis stated.

NSHSS members automatically become lifetime member at the time of their initial membership.

“Each step along the way, from high school to college career – NSHSS connects outstanding young scholars with the resources they need to develop their strengths and pursue their passions,” he stated.
