KHS Students Recognized in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program
Kirksville High School Principal, Randy Mikel, announced today that six students from KHS have received recognition in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Richard Ma, Miles Krusniack, and Karl Ramberg have been named as Semi-Finalists and will continue on in the scholarship competition. These students placed among the top 16,000 scorers (more than 1.6 million students) who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
Garrett Johnson, Trenton Morgan, and Paul Ramberg have been named Commended Students by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. About 34,000 students across the nation receive this designation. Although these students will not continue in the scholarship program, their scores merited commendation as they fell within the next tier of scores.
“This national recognition of six KHS students, within the top 50,000 in the nation, speaks to the academic talent of these individuals as well as the total program of study at KHS,” commented Mikel. “These young men possess outstanding potential for academic success and it is the hope that the National Merit recognition will give them additional educational opportunities.”
