Lubbock ISD recognizes 2010 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock ISD will recognize the National Merit Semifinalists at a reception on Wednesday, September 23 at 11:00 a.m.

National Merit Scholarship Corporation officials announced the 2010 Semifinalists in the 55th annual National Merit Scholarship Program on Sept. 16, 2009. Of the 1.5 million students taking the qualifying exam, Lubbock ISD had 10 scholars tapped with the prestigious award. LISD is the only public school district in Lubbock County with students named as National Merit Semifinalists.

Lubbock ISD Semifinalists are Winifred Conrad, Bayless Drum, Katharine Glasheen, Shaylen Hogue, Johanna Neuber, Julia Shannon and Ketevan Tsereteli from Lubbock High School, and John Myers, Haley Schneider and Jacob Skelton from Monterey High School.

Other West Texas public schools students honored include Wichita Falls ISD with six scholars, Abilene ISD and Waco ISD with three, Midland ISD with two and Odessa ISD and Amarillo ISD each produced one semifinalist.

Students took the 2008 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, and less than one percent of high school seniors from around the nation scoring among the highest in each state qualified as a semifinalist.

The National Merit Semifinalists have the opportunity to receive National Merit Scholarships offered next spring. National Merit Scholarship winners for 2010 will be announced beginning in April and concluding in July. The scholarship recipients will add to the more than 267,000 other distinguished students who have received the title of Merit Scholar.
