CVA student named to national society


ATLANTA, Ga. — The National Society of High School Scholars has announced that Carrabassett Valley Academy student Craig Marshall has been selected for membership. The society recognizes top scholars and invites only those students who have achieved superior academic excellence.

The announcement was made by NSHSS Founder and Chairman Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes.

“On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Craig has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence,” said Nobel. “Craig is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future.”

Membership in the society entitles qualified students to a wide variety of benefits, including scholarship opportunities, academic competitions, free events, member-only resources, publications, participation in programs offered by educational partners, online forums, personalized recognition items and publicity honors.

Marshall is a senior at Carrabassett Valley Academy where he competes in alpine ski racing. He is the son of Jay and Nancy Marshall of Carrabassett Valley and the grandson of Dick and Joan Marshall of Farmington, and Martha Briggs and the late Frank Briggs of Wilton.

Marshall will be taking a post-graduate year to train and compete in ski racing and will enter the freshman class at Colby College in the fall of 2011.
