|National Achievers Society|
The National Achievers Society (NAS), a National Urban League academic honors society, honors high school students who maintain a B average and have earned recognition for exceptional achievement in the arts or community service.
The central aim of the program is to provide a safe haven that reduces negative peer pressure associated with academic achievement. Students in the program gain leadership skills, receive ACT and SAT test preparation and are exposed to various opportunities in a wide range of job markets. Participants have the opportunity to attend career panels featuring professionals from the community, and can participate in a college visit in the spring.
With more than 1200 Chattanooga program participants since the organization’s establishment in 1998, several of these students have attended such post graduate institutions as Wake Forest University, Mercer, Spellman, and Morehouse College.
Requirements for NAS are that the student be a 9th-12th grader and able to maintain a 3.0 GPA.
