Two students, Megan Powers and Rusty Stauder, were named semifinalists in the 2006 Merit Scholarship Competition. The semifinalists are selected from less than 1 percent of the nation's top high school seniors.
These academically talented seniors will compete for Merit Scholarship awards next spring, according to a district news release.

High school students enter the National Merit Scholarship competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Schol-arship Qualifying Test during their junior year.
The students and teachers named by the students as "influential teachers" will be recognized at the Tuesday, Oct. 11, meeting of the Lindbergh Board of Education and commended for their hard work and dedication.
