NSHSS recognizes students who have achieved superior academic excellence.
“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Nicole M. Puckett has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said NSHSS founder and chairman Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel prize.
Shawn Puckett, Nicole’s mother, said her daughter took the SAT when she was 12 as part of the TIPS program with Duke University and scored higher than 55 percent of the seniors who took it the same year.
“Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities,” said NSHSS President James Lewis. “We aim to help students like Nicole M. Puckett build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community."
