Students earn college-sponsored National Merit Scholarships

Georgia Tech, the University of Southern California and Wheaton College have awarded National Merit Scholarships to three students who will begin studying at their institutions in the fall.
Patrick Loeffler, Whitewater High, has received a scholarship from Georgia Tech where he will major in medicine; Christopher Hrvoj, McIntosh High, received a University of Southern California scholarship, he plans to major in neuroscience; and Lauren Anderson, McIntosh High, is the recipient of a scholarship from Wheaton College, a Christian liberal arts college near Chicago, where she will major in international relations.
The college-sponsored scholarships provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship. These three students are among 2,800 graduating seniors nationwide who were awarded scholarships in the first announcement of winners. Another group of winners will be announced in July, bringing the total number of college-sponsored scholarship recipients to over 4,900.
