Grace Plummer

The Wellston National Honor Society (NHS) announces that Cecilia (Grace) Plummer, a high school senior at Wellston High School and President of NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist.

Since 1946, more than $21 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.

“I am very proud that Grace has been recognized as an outstanding member of our student body. National Honor Society members are chosen for and then expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community, and Grace excels in both areas” said Mrs. Samantha Beatty, chapter adviser.

At Wellston High School, Plummer has led multiple activities within the community, including drives for toys, clothing and food; leading the Art Club and writing grants for the club; tutoring at Bundy Elementary; and helping to arrange meal deliveries to needy families in the community. Plummer says that she loves being involved with the youth of her community because Wellston is such a special place that is close to her heart. One of the highlights of her service has been working with kids on volunteer projects.

This fall, she will attend The Ohio State University to study Biology on a pre-med track to become a pediatrician. She hopes to continue to support Wellston after graduation and throughout her career.
