LHS seniors earn college referrals
Jasmine Holland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kent Harms, and Maria Jackson, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. George F. Jackson, have been named participants of the National Achievement Scholarship Program.
The two Lansing High School seniors are among 3,000 participants that will be referred to U.S. colleges and universities.
Holland and Jackson scored in the top 5 percent of more than 140,000 black Americans who requested consideration in the 2008 National Achievement Program when they took the 2006 Preliminary SAT.
The National Achievement Scholarship was initiated in 1964 specifically to honor academically promising black American high school students. This annual scholarship competition is conducted by the same corporation that conducts the National Merit Scholarship Program.
