Dyker Heights

With honors

Huzza, huzza to borough son Syed Ali Murtaza on his induction as one of the newest members of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

“NSCS is more than just a symbol of academic achievement. Membership gives students access to a number of amazing benefits including career and networking resources, scholarships, travel, and service projects both on campus and in the community,” said Stephen Loflin, founder and chief executive officer of the society.

The Dyker Heights scholar is about to finish his first year at Stony Brook University.

Mom Shabbir Shah shared with us, “My son plans to get a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree after completing college and hopefully run a successful business one day.”

The society is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is the nation’s only interdisciplinary honors organization for first- and second-year college students. Membership is by invitation only, and is based on grade point average and class standing.

Standing O can hardly wait to give Syed a shout-out when he moves over his tassels in the future.
