Students selected for National Merit Program
Six New Braunfels High School juniors have been selected to participate in the 2001 National Merit Program’s College Plans.
The students — Edward Coles, Michelle Dokken, James Heinbaugh, Justin Mills, Regan Towal and Orrin Waters — had Selection Index scores on the PSAT of at least 199, placing them among the 50,000 highest scorers in the 2001 Merit Program.
These students have shown outstanding academic potential and are invited to be referred to two colleges or universities in the United States in which they are especially interested.
In September 2000, the National Merit Corporation will announce the Selection Index Score that will determine the National Merit Semifinalists. (The Selection Score is the sum of the three test parts of PSAT: Verbal + Math + Writing). Semifinalist selection will be made from the list of students who were invited to participate in the National Merit Program with Selection Index Scores of at least 199.
Once the semifinalists have been selected, they will be notified that they may participate in the National Merit Finalist com-petion.
