Grace Jackson, National Honor Society president, receives her award from Nevada High School Jerry Whalen. Jackson is one of about 190 NHS students recognized during Monday night’s Academic Achievement Recognition ceremony in the Ella Maxwell Center for the Performing Arts sponsored by the Nevada High School chapter of the National Honor Society. Sophomore, junior and senior students must have a 3.5-grade point average for the previous year to receive this award. The current seniors who maintain a 3.5 GPA during this school year will be recognized again during the annual senior recognition night in May. Until this year the academic achievement awards were presented in the spring. In the future awards will be presented during the first two weeks of the school year.
