Randa Taylor, a senior and member of the National Honor Society (NHS) at Paradise High School, has been named one of 400 national semifinalists in the National Honor Society Scholarship program. Taylor was chosen from more than 9,000 applicants and will receive a $2,325 scholarship.

Paradise NHS adviser Stacey Webb said, “Randa is one of those rare students that is incredibly self-motivated. She gets things done, goes above and beyond and maintains exceptionally high standards – not because she has to, but because she wants to. I know she will not only meet, but also surpass the high goals she sets for herself. I am so proud of her!”

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, Taylor is recognized as one of the top 300 NHS members in the nation this school year.

While at Paradise High School, Taylor has been the senior class president, FFA president, Student Council treasurer and played multiple varsity sports while participating in a variety of community service activities. She also serves as the Texas Junior Limousin Association president and serves on the North American Limousin Junior Association board of directors. This fall she plans to attend Texas A&M University to study animal science.
