Two Class of 2024 Grads Win National Merit College Scholarships

Two Cherokee County School District Class of 2024 graduates have earned National Merit college-awarded scholarships!

Congratulations to Creekview High School Class of 2024 graduates Peter Greenwell and Kinley Sikes, who today both were named National Merit University of Georgia Scholarship winners.  Both plan to pursue careers in the medical field.

National Merit college-awarded scholarship winners are selected by awarding groups through review of academic records and college-entrance exam scores; leadership and service in their school and community; and personal essays and letters of recommendation.  

Only 15,000 of the nation’s top graduating seniors are named National Merit Finalists becoming eligible for the 2,900 National Merit Scholarships financed by U.S. universities and colleges.  The scholarships range from $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study.

An additional 700 National Merit college-awarded scholarship winners will be named in July.
