Antoneil Carter ’17, a National Honor Society (NHS) member since 2016, was recently named one of 400 national semifinalists, chosen from among 9,000 applicants, in the National Honor Society Scholarship Program and received $2,325. She is the first O’Dowd student to win an NHS Scholarship.

“The competition for NHS scholarships is intense,” O’Dowd Librarian and NHS moderator Annette Counts said. “The scholarship recognizes Toni’s contributions to the O’Dowd community as well as her commitment to academics.”

A highly regarded member of the O’Dowd community, Antoneil is a member of the varsity cheer and debate teams, serves as the Associated Student Body (ASB) Vice President and is a member of the Black Student Union (BSU) Executive Council.

Only students who are members of chapters with an active affiliation with the NHS national office are eligible to participate in the NHS Scholarship program. Additional information about the program can be found at
