National Honor Society member wins national recognition

BLACKSTONE, Mass. – Lauren Bouvier, a senior and member of the National Honor Society at Blackstone-Millville Regional High School, has been named one of 400 national semifinalists in the National Honor Society Scholarship program.

Lauren was chosen from more than 9,000 applicants and will receive a $2,325 scholarship.

“Lauren represents the best of what we hope for in our students. She is a natural leader full of new and exciting ideas and sincere in her actions. She strives to make a difference by helping others each and every day,” said Marianne McLean, NHS adviser.

High school seniors who are members in good standing of an active National Honor Society chapter are able to apply for a NHS Scholarship. Finalists are 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 semifinalist, Lauren Bouvier is recognized as one of the top 300 NHS members in the nation this school year.

While at Blackstone-Millville Regional High School, Bouvier has been the NHS vice president, student council delegate, member of the BMR marching band, community dance teacher as well as being involved in many service projects within the school and communities of Blackstone and Millville. This fall she plans to attend the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to study psychology.
