Truckee students included in Who’s Who

Many students from Truckee are included in “Who’s Who Among American High School Students, 1999-2000.”

“Who’s Who,” published by Educational Communications, Inc., Lake Forest, Illinois, is the largest recognition program and publication in the nation honoring high achieving high school students.

Students are nominated by high school principals and guidance counselors, national youth groups, churches and educational organizations based upon students’ academic achievement and involvement in extracurricular activities. Traditionally, 99 percent of “Who’s Who” students have a grade point average of B or better and 97 percent are college bound.

The 34th annual edition of “Who’s Who Among American High School Students, 1999-2000,” was published in 18 regional volumes and features over 750,000 students or just 5 percent of the nation’s 14,000,000 high school students. They represent approximately 20,000 of the 24,000 public, private and parochial high schools in the country.

Who’s Who students also compete for $200,000 in scholarship awards and participate in the publication’s “Annual Survey of High Achievers,” an annual opinion poll of teen attitudes.

The book is distributed on a complimentary basis to up to 15,000 high schools, colleges, universities and public libraries throughout the country.
