Congratulations to Tippecanoe High School seniors Cooper Calk and Davis Featherstone! Cooper is the son of Tina and Clinton Calk. Davis is the son of Diana and McKay Featherstone,
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must advance to Finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and other rigorous requirements. Approximately 1.5 million high school students enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
