WASHINGTON — This year 64 students from the Imperial Valley qualified for induction into the National Honor Roll.
The National Honor Roll recognizes high school students for exceptional academic and extracurricular success. Inductees have attained a level of achievement shared by only about 4.5 percent of high school students.
"From these students will come many of tomorrow's leaders. Honoring their achievements inspires stronger performance and leadership," said Lynn Romeo, publisher of the National Honor Roll. "We recognize these young people have worked hard to attain academic success and are proud to recognize them through inclusion in National Honor Roll."
National Honor Roll students receive an application for a $1,000 community contributions scholarship. Scholarships are awarded each year to high-achieving students who made an exraordinary contribution to their community and/or school.
