MHS student is Merit Scholar

Dylan M. Oney of Muskogee High School has received a National Merit Georgia-Pacific LLC Scholarship, according to a release from the National Merit Scholarship Corp.

Scholars were selected from students who advanced to the finalist level in the National Merit Scholarship competition and met criteria of their scholarship sponsors, the release states. Corporate sponsors provide National Merit Scholarships for finalists who are children of their employees, who are residents of communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the sponsor wishes to encourage.

About 1.5 million juniors in 22,000 high schools entered the 2013 National Merit Scholarship competition. Semifinalists were the highest-scoring program entrants in each state and represented less than 1 percent of the nation’s seniors.
