|Big Sandy area students make National Honor Roll|
|Lynbrook, N.Y. – Many students from the Big Sandy Region qualified for induction into 2002-2003 National Honor Roll.|
The National Honor Roll recognizes high-achieving middle and high school students. "These young people have worked hard to attain academic success." says Lynn Romeo, Publisher of the National Honor Roll. "Honoring their achievement provides motivation and encourages them to continue striving. We're proud to include them in the National Honor Roll."
The National Honor Roll offers several benefits which can contribute to the success of its student members. By taking advantage of NHR's College Admissions Notification Services, high school inductees can notify the admissions office of as many schools as they wish that they have been inducted into the National Honor Roll and that they are interested in obtaining information about those colleges. High School inductees recieve an application for one of the 25, $1000 Community Contributions Scholarships which are awarded annually by the Educational Research Center of America. These Scholarships are awarded to the students who have made an extraordinary contribution to their communities and/or schools. Middle School inductees are eligible to compete for 1 of 10 " National Honor Roll Proud To Live In America" Scholarships. They must submit a short paragraph explaining why they are "Proud To Live In America." The 10 inductees with the most compelling explanations will each receive a $1000 U.S. Savings Bond. Each state governor and all U.S. Senators receive a complimentary copy of the Commemorative Edition, along with a list of the students who have been inducted in their states. Complimentary copies of the book are also sent to selected school libraries across the country.
The National Honor Roll contacts potentially qualifying students after reviewing information about their academic performance. Students are asked to submit information about their GPA, their interests, activities, and future goals for further consideration. Only students with a B or better average are eligible. This year, 68% of the inductees averaged an A- or better and 32% averaged B through B+. 42% were Seniors (Class of 2003); 29% Juniors (Class of 2004); 17% Sophomores (Class of 2005); 9% Freshmen (Class of 2006); and 3% Middle School.
Two editions will be published to cover the 2002-2003 school year. The students on the following list were included in the first - 2002-2003 National Honor Commemorative Edition, which was released in June. A follow-up edition, entitled Spring 2003, will ship later in the year and will include those students who were contacted after the cut-off date for the June publication.
Effective with the 2003-2004 edition, National Honor Roll will introduce a new scholarship set up exclusively for National Honor Roll inductees. Each year, $100,000 in scholarships will be awarded. National Honor Roll inductees who are legal residents of the U.S. and have taken the ACT or SAT examinations will be able to compete.
