Parkway student receives National Merit Achievement Scholarship

One Parkway student is among the 800 outstanding Black American high school seniors who have won an Achievement Scholarship award through the National Achievement Scholarship Program.

The scholarship program, which recognizes outstanding African-American high school students, will award nearly $2 million in college funds this year. The award typically provides a one-time $2,500 payment toward academic costs.

The Parkway student is Ahmed Eltahir from Central High.

More than 160,000 students entered the scholarship competition when they took the Preliminary SAT as high school juniors. Of those, about 1,600 were named as semifinalists. The finalists were then selected based on their academic record, the recommendation of school officials and a personal essay.
