POSTED July 30, 2013 1:50 a.m.

Jagveer Singh is receiving recognition for his work in the classroom.

The East Union High sophomore has a 4.17 grade point average and was just named a National Society of High School Scholar.

“Jagveer is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future,” said Claes Nobel, who is founder and chairman of the Atlanta-based NSHSS.

Singh is the son of Baljit Kaur of Manteca and hopes to someday become a cardiologist.

He’s not sure as to who put him up for the honor that recognizes superior academic achievement but believes his East Union counselor Lori Jackson and Principal John Alba were part of it. “I know it was members of the EU faculty,” he said.

As a member of NSHSS, Singh, who learned last Friday of the honor, can now enjoy several of the benefits, including scholarship opportunities, academic competitions, free events, members-only resources, and participation in programs offered by educational partners.

He’s looking to use the honor as more motivation.

“It will keep pushing me in school to do even better,” Singh said on Monday.

He won’t be eligible for Advanced Placement classes until next year. Singh has been in honors English class.

The NSHSS recognizes academic excellence at the high school level while encouraging members of this prestigious organization to apply their unique talents, vision, and potential for the betterment of themselves and the world.

As it stands, there are more than 830,000 society members in over 160 countries.
