Bearcats Earn Commended Scholar Recognition
 
Three Aledo High School students have been honored by the National Merit Scholarship Program with Commended Recognition.
 
Seniors Zachary Leeper, Mary Gamez and Rylan Akers (pictured left to right) earned Commended Scholar recognition.
 
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Bearcat Senior Named National Merit Semifinalist
 
Aledo High School senior Tanner Legvold has been honored as one of the nation’s top students.
 
Legvold was announced this week as a National Merit Semifinalist. He was among approximately 16,000 semifinalists named in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These students have an opportunity to continue in the competition for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring.
 
Legvold is currently considering Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas. He is a four-year member of the Bearcat Regiment band and is the saxophone section leader. He also participates in the Jazz Band, serves as President of the Robotics Club and is a member of the National Honor Society.
 
To earn the Semifinalist honor, students must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test. From the approximately 16,000 Semifinalists, about 15,000 are expected to advance to the Finalist level, and in February they will be notified of this designation.
