Honors are not always conferred on students at the local level.


Sometimes national and international organizations recognize the achievements of local students. That’s what happened with Big Walnut High School student Richard Pletcher, who was recently notified of his selection to become a member of the National Society of High School Scholars.


The NSHSS recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship and community commitment. NSHSS membership carries a wide variety of benefits, including scholarship opportunities, academic competitions, members-only resources, publications and more.


“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Richard has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” wrote NSHSS Founder and Chairman Claes Nobel in a letter sent to Pletcher. “Richard is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”


Pletcher said he was surprised to be selected as an NSHSS inductee.


“It’s an honor to receive this,” Pletcher said. “I didn’t expect it at all.”


Pletcher, who is a member of the Big Walnut High School Band and takes AP German and computer classes, said he plans to attend Columbus State and study video game creation and game writing.


There are more than one million members of the National Society of High School Scholars in over 160 countries. For additional information about the National Society of High School Scholars, www.nshss.org.
