Katy, TX News (April 16, 2015) – Seven Lakes High School seniors Brianna Aheimer and Oluwatofe Alimi are the recipients of a $2,500 Achievement Scholarship through the National Achievement Scholarship Program. Aheimer and Alimi are among only 800 seniors nationwide to receive this scholarship.
More than 150,000 students from across the country were considered in the 2015 National Achievement Scholarship Program after taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as high school juniors.
From that pool of students, the National Achievement Scholarship Program selected approximately 1,600 Semifinalists. The winners were selected based on their record of accomplishments and greatest potential for academic success in college.
The National Achievement Scholarship Program was established in 1964 to honor scholastically talented Black American youth and provide scholarships to the most outstanding participants in each annual competition. These awards, totaling more than $2 million, are financed by grants from 30 corporate organizations and professional associations, as well as the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
