National Merit Program Recognizes CACC Students

Both current and former Columbia Area Career Center students were named Commended Students in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program this month.  Of the 21 students to earn the recognition in Columbia Public Schools, six are current CACC students and 12 have taken Career Center classes during their high school careers.

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation oversees the annual program that honors academically talented students based on state and national criteria.  Last year, nearly 1.5 million high school juniors took the PSAT as a preliminary screening for the program. Only 34,000 students earned a Letter of Commendation--that's less than one percent of high school seniors in the country.

Here's a list of our current CACC students:
