NEW SHARON – The National Honor Society announced that Lane Harmon, a high school senior at North Mahaska and member of NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist.
Since 1946, more than $21 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.
“I am so proud of Lane for receiving this scholarship.” said National Honor Society co-sponsor, Rachel Martin. “Lane is a hard-working student and is always willing to step in when we need him. Lane is a leader and exemplifies the pillars that NHS represents.”
At North Mahaska, Harmon is currently serving as the student body president and has been a student mentor. He has also been a part of the cross-country and basketball teams. He has participated in Teenserve missions and helped with the PROS Youth Group. This fall, he will attend the University of Northern Iowa to study marketing with a possible minor in communications or journalism.
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.
