Local students qualify for National Honor Roll
LYNBROOK, N.Y. – Thirty-three students from the Nash County area qualified for induction into the Spring 2006 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," says 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."

The National Honor Roll offers several benefits which can contribute to the success of its student members. For students in the 2005-2006 school year, National Honor Roll set aside $25,000 to be shared among 25 of its qualifying inductees. All members were entitled to compete for one of these National Honor Roll Awards for Academic Achievement, which were 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 that 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. And complimentary 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. Two-thirds of the inductees in the Spring 2006 National Honor Roll averaged an A- or better; one-third averaged B through B+; 13 percent were seniors (class of 2006); 33 percent were juniors (class of 2007); 28 percent were sophomores (class of 2008), 23 percent were freshmen (class of 2009) and 3 percent were from the class of 2010.
