LHS student joins national honor society
Lancaster High School student Austin Franceschelli of Lancaster has been selected for membership in the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS).
The society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who achieved academic excellence. The announcement was made by NSHSS Founder and Chairman Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes.
“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice, and commitment that Austin has demonstrated to achieve this level of academic excellence,” Nobel said. “Austin is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future.
“Our vision is to build a dynamic international organization that connects members with meaningful content, resources, and opportunities,” NSHSS President James Lewis said. “We aim to help students like Austin build on their academic successes and enhance the skills and desires to have a positive impact on the global community.”
Franceschelli is the son of Freddie and Amy Franceschelli of Lancaster. He is the grandson of Rocky and Sharon Bowers of Lancaster and Fred Franceschelli Sr. of Scranton, Pa.
