Graduating seniors at Fayette County High and Starr’s Mill High are among the 2,500 students nationwide receiving National Merit Scholarships.

Kathryn McCord (Starr’s Mill), Sonika Reddy (Fayette County), and Jessica Lambing (Starr’s Mill) will each receive a $2,500 Merit Scholarship to help offset college expenses. Kathryn plans to major in biology; Sonika is planning a career in medicine, and Jessica has set her sights on secondary education. Sonika is also the salutatorian for Fayette County High.

Applicants were evaluated on their academic record, including difficulty of subjects studied and grades earned; scores from two standardized tests; contributions and leadership in school and community activities; an essay describing interests and goals; and the recommendation written by a high school official.
