Nicholas Nosbisch, a 2013 St. Anthony High School graduate and member of the St. Anthony High School National Honor Society, has been named one of 150 State Finalists in the National Honor Society Scholarship from the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). These 150 NHS state Finalists were first chosen from over 4,000 applicants. Nosbisch is the son of Mike and Mindy Nosbisch.
“Nick has earned a great amount of respect from everyone affiliated with St. Anthony High School. Undoubtedly, he will go on to many great things and deserves any scholarship or award he receives,” according to Mr. Greg Fearday, principal at SAHS.
Participating high school National Honor Society chapters from across the country nominated two senior high members to compete in this year’s program. Finalists were selected on the basis of their leadership skills, participation in service organizations, clubs and other student groups at school and in the community; and their academic record. As a Regional Winner, Nosbisch is recognized as one of the 150 NHS members in the nation this school year.
“We are proud to recognize Nosbisch for his outstanding achievements and contributions to his school,” said David Cordts, associate director, NHS. “Students nominated for the NHS scholarship not only demonstrate academic excellence, but also extraordinary performance in service, leadership, and character – traits that are more important today than ever before. In recognizing leadership and involvement in student activities as well as strong academic performance, the NHS scholarship acknowledges the importance of a well-rounded education.”
While at St. Anthony High School, Nosbisch has been Student Council president, National Honor Society president, Spanish Club president, a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a class officer all four years, a member of the soccer team, and involved in several service projects. This fall he plans to attend Quincy University to study biology.
