By K. Lowitzki

NorthPointe Christian Schools proudly recognizes the advancement of Ryan Fleetham to finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Ryan is one of approximately 15,000 finalist selected through demonstration of distinguished performance and high potential for future academic accomplishment.  

Ryan, along with other finalists, represent less than one percent of high school seniors in the country.  National Merit Scholarship finalists must have an outstanding academic record, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, and earn SAT scores that confirm the qualifying test performance.  In order to qualify, students are also asked to submit a detailed scholarship application, which includes an essay and providing information about extracurricular activities, awards, and leadership positions.  

Ryan plans to attend Rose-Hulman, the #1 ranked undergraduate engineering college, to pursue electrical engineering, specializing in the renewable/sustainable energy sector.

Congratulations to Ryan for this outstanding achievement.
