LHS students earn recognition
Three Lansing High School students have been commended in the 2006 National Merit Scholarship Program. Another was named an outstanding National Achievement Scholarship participant.
Seniors Katie Adams, David Kern, Jessica Riese and Alex Scholtz were recognized for their high scores on the PSAT. Commended students Adams, Kern and Riese placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1 million students who competed in the 2006 National Merit Scholarship Program, but they did not reach the status of finalist or semifinalist for the scholarships.
They each received a letter of commendation from LHS and National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
Scholtz scored in the top 5 percent of more than 130,000 black students who competed in the 2006 National Achievement Scholarship Program.
The National Achievement Scholarship Program was created in 1964 to honor academically promising black high school students. Scholtz will be referred to about 1,500 colleges and universities because of his scores.
