Forty area students recently qualified for induction into the 2006-2007 National Honor Roll. The National Honor Roll recognizes high- achieving high school and middle school students. “Young people such as our inductees, who work hard to attain academic success, deserve to be congratulated,” said Lynn Romeo, publisher of the National Honor Roll. “Honoring their achievements provides motivation and encourages them to continue striving toward their goals. We’re proud to include them in the National Honor Roll.” Students from Brady Independent School District recently listed on the honor roll are: Frank Alfaro, Nadia Ayala, Traci Bennevendo, Christian Clark, Symphanie Cole, Christina DeFiore, Stormy Elliott, Jace Fincher, Mollie Fullagar, Rygh Fullagar, Nicolas Garcia, Hannah Gray, Clayton Hallford, Lauren Harris, Katy Hendley, Emma Jolly, Crockett Jurrius, Kenneth Krause, Larat Lawrence, Jameson Leatherwood, Carrie Lundgren, Lucas Luttrall, Jennifer Moran, Whitney Neal, Kristen Newman, Michael Onyegbaduo, Britny Reyes, Kristin Rice, Richard D. Roper, Lindsey Rutherford, Beatrix Scott, Donna Solis, Thomas Turk, Andrew Walker, Holly Watson and Jon Williams. Also listed on the National Honor Roll for the 2006-2007 term are Rosa Fernandez, Billy Rainwater and Johnathon Spencer from Rochelle ISD and Kassie Haines, Llano ISD. The National Honor Roll offers several benefits that can contribute to the success of its student members. For students in the 2006- 2007 school year, National Honor Roll set aside $25,000 to be shared among 25 of its qualifying inductees. All members are entitled to compete for these National Honor Roll Awards for Academic Achievement, which will be awarded in December. National Honor Roll’s College Admissions Notification Service notifies the admissions offices of as many schools as the inductees designate that they have been accepted into the National Honor Roll, and they are interested in obtaining information about those colleges. (A copy of the student’s biography is sent to the colleges along with the notification.) Each United States senator and state governor receives a complimentary copy of the National Honor Roll Commemorative Edition, along with a list of the students from their state who have been inducted into the National Honor Roll. Additional complementarity copies of the book are sent to selected school libraries across the country. The National Honor Roll contacts potentially qualifying students after reviewing information about their academic performance. Each student is asked to submit information about his/her GPA, interests, activities and future goals. Only students with a “B” or better average are eligible to be listed in the National Honor Roll. Two-thirds of the inductees in the 2006-2007 National Honor Roll averaged an “A” or better; one-third averaged “B-B+”. For more information, visit www.nationalhonorroll.org.
