The National Merit $2,500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills and potential for success in rigorous college studies. They are selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors. These Scholars may use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university.
David will attend Harvard in the fall where he plans to prepare for a career in medical research. David’s scholarship was underwritten by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
Lubbock High School Magnet Specialist and International Baccalaureate Coordinator Kay Moore said, ”We are so proud of David. He is a very capable young man and his rigorous studies here at Lubbock High have prepared him well to embrace the opportunities that await him at Harvard.”
