CHS Announces National Merit Honorees
Posted on 11/01/2016

Boerne-Samuel V. Champion High School Principal Dr. Jodi Spoor announced today that nine students will receive national recognition for their academic achievements and performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Semifinalist Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

Anna Norman, National Merit Semi-finalist, was chosen from the approximately 1.6 million participants who take the PSAT each year. As a semi-finalist she will qualify for additional corporate- and college-sponsored scholarships. Norman is a member of Champion's cross country team, and takes classes in Chinese in her spare time.

Phoenix Pittman, Morgan Burgett, Josiah L'Antigua, Brandon Daugherty, Max Klaunig, and Diego Gonzalez are also being recognized as National Merit Commended Students. Compared to their peers nationally, these students performed in the top quartile on the PSAT.

Dr. Spoor also announced the recognition of Abigail Escobar, Ethan Aldrich, and Diego Gonzalez (also a Commended student), as National Hispanic Scholars. This select group of seniors meets the minimum Selection Index score, which varies by region, state, and territory each year, and must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the end of their junior year. This designation is utilized by universities and post-secondary schools to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.
