Oakland Early College Student Awarded Prestigious National Honor Society Scholarship

Farmington Hills, MI – The National Honor Society (NHS) announced that Sara Ahmed, a high school senior at Oakland Early College and member of NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist.

Since 1946, more than $25 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 (NASSP).

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.

When asked about Sara, Morrison Borders, OEC Head of School, responded, "Sara is an example of what we want all OEC students to strive to be. She is hard working, caring, giving of her time, and always willing to help anyone that needs it." 

At Oakland Early College, Ahmed has been an SSI for Civics and Economics, worked on various political campaigns, and taken on leadership roles in various clubs on campus. This fall, she will attend the University of Michigan to study Political Science, Philosophy, and Economics.
