Milner National Merit Finalist

Northeast Jones Senior Tucker Milner has advanced to Finalist standing in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program by demonstrating, through distinguished performance, high potential for future academic accomplishment.  

     The National Merit Scholarship Program is an annual academic competition among high school students for recognition and college scholarships that begin in 1955.  United States high school students enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which serves as an initial screen of over 1.3 million entrants each year, and by meeting published program entry and  participation requirements.  Students who receive Finalist status compete for approximately 7,800 scholarships each year.  

     Tucker is the son of Ryan and Heather Milner of Laurel.

Exploring Careers Keystone Classes Give Mock Press Conferences

Students in Ms. Lisa Bolivar's Exploring Career's Keystone classes participated in a mock press conference concerning the West Nile Virus. In the week preceding the event, students studied Epidemiologists careers in their Health Science unit. For the project, student groups studied state and national data concerning the onset and outbreak of West Nile Virus in the US from 1999 to the present. Students answered questions and prepared a News Release. During the Press Conference, representatives from each group gave their group's speech while the remaining members of the class acted as reporters and posed questions at the end of the Press Conference.
