Students in Same Pre-Engineering Class Now National Merit Finalists

CV Tech's three National Merit Finalists.

Might be something in the water in the afternoon Pre-Engineering class at Canadian Valley Technology Center’s El Reno Campus.

Three students advanced from National Merit Semifinalists to National Merit Finalists. Each is a step closer to becoming a National Merit Scholar and recipient of a $2,500 scholarship.

Roughly half of the 7,250 National Merit Finalists nationwide are selected to receive a National Merit Scholarship of $2,500 and recognition as Merit Scholars, according to information provided by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

Each of the CV Tech recipients is outstanding in his/her own right. Caleb Houston, of Piedmont, said he is still waiting to make his college choice after scoring a perfect 36 on the American College Testing (ACT) entrance exam. He will focus his study on either mechanical, electrical or nuclear engineering.

Micah Roberts, of Mustang, plans to attend Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond. He wants to major in game programming. Roberts expects a full tuition scholarship to be offered soon.

Anjalina Thomas, of Yukon, was recently accepted to Massachusetts Institute of Technology and plans to major in mechanical engineering.

Both Thomas and Roberts were also named Academic All-State, an honor given by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence to the top 100 students statewide, based on academic achievement, leadership and community service.
