NHS SENIOR AWARDED NATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT SCHOLARSHIP



New Hope-Solebury senior, David Dwight, has been selected as the winner of a National Achievement $2,500 Scholarship. The National Achievement Scholarship Program is conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), and this Scholarship is underwritten by NMSC with its own funds.

More than 160,000 students who took the 2009 PSAT/NMSQT entered the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program and also requested consideration in the National Achievement Program, in which only Black Americans participate. Both competitions are conducted by NMSC. Last fall, some 1,600 participants in the National Achievement Program were named Semifinalists. They were designated in several geographic regions on a representational basis, in proportion to the total number of Black Americans in each region. Only these Semifinalists continued in the Achievement Scholarship competition, and approximately 1,300 of them fulfilled requirements necessary to become Finalists. All winners of more than 800 National Achievement Scholarships, worth more than $2.5 million, are being chosen from the group of outstanding Finalists.

David will be attending Washington University in St. Louis in the fall.
