NRHS Student Named National Merit Finalist
Nancy Patel, a senior at North Royalton High School, has been named National Merit Finalist in the 67th National Merit Scholarship Program.

Patel will receive corporate-sponsored awards that are financed by corporations, foundations and other organizations.  These awards can be renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study and range from $1,000 to $10,000/year.  Students and a high school official submitted a scholarship application, including academic records, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards.

Patel is planning on majoring in economics at Washington University in St. Louis.  She resides in North Royalton.  

“Nancy is an excellent student who takes pride in everything she does,” said Principal Sean Osborne, North Royalton High School. “Nancy is ready to take on the world and will most definitely find great success!”

Nancy was also selected as the school’s Phi Beta Kappa honor recipient.  Phi Beta Kappa is the Nation’s Oldest Academic Honor Society.  It was founded in 1776, and ever since, it has honored the scholastic and intellectual achievements of students.  The Cleveland Association of Phi Beta Kappa has extended this honor to outstanding high school students in our area, and has allowed our high school faculty to select a student to represent North Royalton High School.
