Seniors Baylor Dickinson and Connor Peterson of Webb City High School have been selected as honorable mention recognition by Missouri Scholars 100.

The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals sponsors Missouri Scholars 100 and invites schools across Missouri to nominate candidates for recognition.

Each student nominated had first to meet criteria of an “Academic Decathlon,” which includes 10 “events” designed to assure the academic strength of the student. Nominees must have earned a high GPA, an ACT score above a 29, be ranked in the upper 10% of their class, and have taken high-level courses in mathematics, science, English, and foreign language. The student must also have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen, and be involved in the school activities.

Clark Mershon, executive director of the principals’ association, said, “The Missouri Scholars 100 Program is one of the most premier academic recognition programs in the country. It is truly a celebration of learning. Students who are selected to this program have taken a rigorous course of study and have maintained the highest academic standards. The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals wants to celebrate the achievement and success of these students and their schools.”

This is the 28th annual Missouri Scholars 100 recognition.
