30 Area High School Students Win Merit Scholarships


The National Merit Scholarship Corp. has announced the names of 30 St. Louis-area high school students who received $2,000 merit awards in this year's competition.

The students are among about 2,000 seniors nationwide receiving scholarships in the third group of winners announced this year. This group's single-payment awards, which are allocated on a state representational basis, are mostly supported by unrestricted merit program funds. The recipients were chosen from a field of about 14,000 finalists.

The first group of winners - National Merit Achievement awards, and corporate-sponsored scholarship winners - were announced last month. Most college-sponsored scholarship winners will be announced later this month.

Students selected for the scholarship received high scores in 1992 on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude qualifying Test. They also were recommended by their high school principals or guidance counselors, and a team of national judges chose winners that showed the greatest potential for success in college and afterward.

The National Merit Scholarship Corp. is an independent, nonprofit organization that has been awarding scholarships since 1955. The scholarships are financed by about 600 independent organizations throughout the country.

Following are this area's winners, listed by high school. Awards are supported by unrestricted merit program funds, including grants from corporate and business organizations, unless otherwise noted: BELLEVILLE WEST
