Saluting Excellence: Four MORE National Merit Scholars in Metro Schools

The Metro Schools Class of 2015 continues to impress with four more National Merit Scholars added to the ranks! These awards are sponsored by the colleges these students plan to attend and are just as tough to win as the other National Merit Scholarships.

  • Jonathan Ladd, Hume-Fogg Magnet High School
    Sponsoring College: Oberlin College
    Probable Career Field: Political Science
  • Jessica Orkin, Hume-Fogg Magnet High School

    Probable Career Field: Engineering
  • Srinivasa Dheeraj Namburu, Martin Luther King, Jr. Magnet School
