Haynes Academy Senior Awarded National Honor Society Scholarship

The National Honor Society (NHS) announced that Manal Malik, a senior at Haynes Academy and member of the NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist. Malik was chosen from more than 11,000 applicants and will receive a $3,200 scholarship toward higher education.

For nearly 100 years, NHS 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.

At Haynes Academy, Malik serves an active role in community service as president of the Haynes Academy Key Club. She engages in her religious community through the Youth Muslim Sisters group of the Jefferson Muslim Association. In regards to National Honor Society, she will complete her term as vice president this May.

Most notably, Malik was featured by CNN as a Positive Athlete for her stellar Cross Country performance in conjunction with her academic and service commitments. This fall, she will attend Tulane University to double major in Finance and Neuroscience.

Since 1946, more than $15 million in scholarships has 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).
