Participating high school National Honor Society chapters from across the country nominated two senior students to compete in this year’s program. Finalists were selected on the basis of their leadership skills, participation in service organizations, clubs and other student groups at school and in the community; and their academic record. As a regional winner, Ng is recognized as one of the top 53 NHS members in the nation this school year. Read More
