Congratulations to Students Ronan Allencherril, Amila Joseph, Lukas Russell, & Muhammad A. Siddiqi who have met the requirements to enter the 2013 SAT/National Merit Scholarship Program. With a selection score of 200 or above, each of these students is among the 50,000 highest scoring participants of some 1.5 million program entrants. From here, students will learn in September whether they have been identified as Semifinalists or Commended students.
The Texas Association of Student Councils, sponsored by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals, has recognized the MHS Student Council with the following awards. Fewer than 20% of TASC schools are recognized in one or more areas, so this is quite an accomplishment. Carol Fountain is their sponsor.
