Runnels Graduates Named National Merit Scholarship Winners


The National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced that 19 Baton Rouge students from eight schools have been awarded National Merit scholarships. Two Runnels High School students from the Class of 2017 are among those scholarship winners.
Runnels’ National Merit college scholarship winners are Henry Forgey and Andrew Mitchell. In an earlier announcement from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in May, Runnels senior Regan Dean was named a National Merit Scholarship recipient. 
Of the 15,000 students named National Merit Finalists in a given year, approximately half are awarded National Merit Scholarships.
