Smarts in the Arts

Five students at North High School in Downers Grove - all active in the Fine Arts - have been designated as semifinalists in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program, an academic competition for recognition and scholarships sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Students are selected based on test scores, an essay, their schools’ curricula and school official recommendations, as well as involvement in activities and leadership.

The DGN Fine Arts faculty and staff wish to congratulate:

· Kayla Chapa (Photography)
· Emily Temple-Wood (Band)
· Andrea Vetrone (Band)
· Kelsey White (Choir & Orchestra)
· Hannah Young (Orchestra, Band & Choir)

“These students are a source of pride for all of us in the community, and we congratulate them on their achievements and recognition in this prestigious program,” says Superintendent Dr. Mark McDonald.
