Canton native Haley Madison Jones, a freshman at the University of North Georgia, has accepted an invitation for membership in The National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is an honors organization that invites less than 10 percent of all eligible students nationwide to join the ranks of its diverse membership each year. Membership is extended to high-achieving first- and second-year college students with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. An interdisciplinary academic honor society, the organization is made up of scholars from two-year, four-year and online institutions.

“NSCS is more than just a symbol of academic achievement; it is a distinction of honor,” NSCS Executive Director Scott Mobley said in a news release. “Our scholars are some of the best who have shown an unwavering commitment to academic excellence early in their collegiate journey. These dynamic individuals embody the NSCS pillars of scholarship, leadership and service, and many go on to become active contributors within their respective fields.”

With a portfolio of exclusive benefits that include access to over $1 million in scholarships, chapter funds and awards annually, professional development resources, exclusive tailored content and leadership and service experiences, the honors society is posed to support member growth and development throughout their academic and collegiate journey.

“NSCS members’ deep commitment to service, integrity and scholarships positively impact their campuses and local communities every day,” Mobley said. “We welcome Haley Madison Jones to our community of like-minded, high-achieving nationwide scholars.”

Notable distinguished honorary members of the organization include former President Jimmy Carter, U.S. Ambassador Dr. Robin Renee Sanders, the late Senator John McCain and former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala.
