JHS Senior Carson Walters becomes school’s first…

JAY HIGH SENIOR CARSON WALTERS IS FIRST NATIONAL MERIT FINALIST IN SCHOOL’S HISTORY

 

Jay High School Senior, Carson Walters, is the winner of the National Merit Auburn University Scholarship.  Walters is the first National Merit Scholar Finalist to graduate from Jay High School.  College-sponsored Merit Scholarship winners are a part of a distinguished group of about 7,500 high school seniors who will receive National Merit Scholarships for college undergraduate study worth nearly $30 million.  Walters lists his probable career field as orthopedic surgery, and will be attending Auburn University in the fall.

Over 1.5 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program when they took the 2019 PSAT, which served as an initial screen of program entrants.  Last fall, approximately 17,000 Semifinalists were named who were the highest-scoring program entrants in each state and represented less than one percent of the nation’s seniors.
