Siri Uppuluri, a senior and member of the National Honor Society (NHS) at Metuchen High School, has been named one of 400 national semifinalists in the National Honor Society Scholarship program. Siri was chosen from more than 9,000 applicants and will receive a $2,325 scholarship.
Chapter Advisor, Lauren Volosin, stated that “Siri is an amazing student and person. She was chosen by her fellow members to be an NHS Chapter Officer this year and they were right to do so since I could always turn to Siri to help organize an event or reach out to the other members. Her work ethic, organizational skills, and upbeat personality make her an invaluable resource for the chapter. I am so happy that she is being recognized with this honor”.
High school seniors who are members in good standing of an active National Honor Society chapter are able to apply for an 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, Siri is recognized as one of the top 300 NHS members in the nation this school year.
While at Metuchen High School, Siri has been an officer for the National Honor Society, captain of the Varsity Girls Tennis Team, and president of the Science National Honor Society. She is also an active volunteer in various organizations at MHS and in the local community. This fall she plans to attend the New Jersey Institute of Technology as part of the Accelerated BA/MD Medical Program with the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
