Reno, NV (July 23, 2015) – The National Merit Scholarship Corporation has announced that five high school seniors from the Washoe County School District (WCSD) have been awarded college-sponsored scholarships for the 2015-2016 school year.
"These five students are outstanding scholars, and we are extremely proud of their accomplishments," said WCSD Chief School Performance Officer Dr. Paul LaMarca. "We join with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in congratulating them and their families for this achievement. We wish them all the best as they begin their college careers."
The five students will receive annual awards ranging from $500 to $2,500 for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship. Officials at the college determine each winner's annual merit scholarship stipend using financial information filed with the institution. This year, four of the students will attend the University of Nevada, Reno, and a fifth will attend Northwestern University.
Here are the names of the WCSD students who will receive these scholarships, and the high schools from which they graduated earlier this year:
Valerie A. Pober, Incline High School
