Posted Date: 09/22/2023

                                                                  Seven students recognized by the National Merit Foundation stand side by side in the high school library.

The Orange City Schools are proud to share that not only do we have three National Merit Semi-Finalists, but those students are joined by four Commended Students who are also being recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Foundation! In addition to (from left) Anjali Chepyala, Sam Dupont, and Brianne Lipton, we congratulate Tomas Cakulev, Evelyn Campbell, Heidi Moody, and Charlie Rubsamen! Out of the 1.3 million juniors in thousands of high schools across the country, only the top 2%-3% (about 34,000 students) receive commended status. We are so proud you are all ORANGE!
