Four Francis Howell School District high school seniors earned recognition as part of the 27th Annual Missouri Scholars 100 that honors Missouri’s highest achieving students.
“We’re proud to see these students celebrated for their talent and determination,” Dr. Nathan Hoven, Francis Howell School District Superintendent, said. “It’s a great honor – these students stood out as the top 100 seniors in the entire state.”
The winners include Sam Chen, Francis Howell Central; Lauren Guth, Francis Howell Central; Emma Rohrbach, Francis Howell North; and James (Jay) Scott, Francis Howell North.
To be selected as a member of Missouri Scholars 100, students must have a minimum 3.75 GPA, have a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1900, be ranked in the upper 10% of the class and have taken upper-level courses in mathematics, science, English, and a foreign language. The students must also have excellent attendance, be exemplary school citizens, and be involved in school activities. Missouri Scholars 100 is sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals. Schools are invited to nominate two candidates for recognition. Each student nominated has to first meet the criteria of an Academic Decathlon, which includes 10 events designed to test the academic strength of each student.
The scholars will be celebrated at a luncheon on April 25.
