Eleven CSD Students Named National Merit Scholar Semi-Finalists

Eleven Canyons District students are semi-finalists in the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

The students are among the 16,000 scholastically talented high school seniors who remain in the competition for 8,300 National Merit Scholarships. The awards, worth more than $32 million, will be announced this spring. Of the Canyons students, eight attend school at Hillcrest. Two are students at Alta, and one attends Jordan.

About 1.5 million juniors in some 22,000 high schools entered the 2013 competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as the initial screen of the entrants. The nationwide pool of semi-finalists, which represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. The number of semi-finalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

A semi-finalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test. The semi-finalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, which includes the student’s essay and information about the semi-finalist’s participation and leadership in school and community activities.

The CSD students who have earned semi-finalist status are: 

Jacob Brown
Joshua T. Fairbourn
Cory D. Goates
Aaron A. Johnson
Micah R. Johnston,
John R. Morrell
Jarom T. Norris
Caius S. Worthen

Parker Awerkamp

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
