Class of 2024

Seniors Recognized by National Merit

Athens Academy is pleased to announce that eight members of the Class of 2024 have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and the College Board. Congratulations to Westbrook Adams, Matthew Can, Thomas Collins, Ryland Marley, and Wade Slatcher, who have been named Semi-finalists by the National Merit Scholarship Program. As Semi-finalists, these five students represent the top 1-2% of the highest scoring seniors across the country. They will continue in the competition for National Merit scholarships, which will be announced in the spring. 
In addition, two seniors have been recognized as National Merit Commended Students, representing the top 3-4% of the highest scorers across the country. Congratulations to Camden Lang and Margalit Mauricio.

The College Board has also honored senior Mark Tribble with the National Hispanic Recognition Award, which is based on his PSAT scores as well as his previous academic performance. Fewer than 1% of Hispanic/Latino students taking the PSAT are even invited to apply for this notable achievement.
