Two Saline High School seniors have earned the National Merit Scholarship.
Cameron Tressler and Ruth Sullivan are among 2,500 students who earned the $2,500 scholarship and the “Merit Scholar” designation. There were 15,000 finalists for the program.
The scholarship winners are the finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. The number of winners in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the nation’s graduating high school seniors.
Sullivan will attend Brown University to study biomedical engineerin. Tressler will attend the University of Michigan to study engineering.
