Rolla High School seniors Nate Potrafka and Kristen Copeland have been selected for the 2016 Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri’s top academic students in the graduating class of 2016.
Students will be recognized at a luncheon at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia on April 24.
Missouri Scholars 100 is a program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals.Schools across Missouri were invited to nominate candidates for this statewide recognition.
The selection is based primarily on a formula using the student’s grade point average and ACT or SAT score. Each student nominated had to first meet criteria of an “academic decathlon,” which included 10 “events” designed to assure the academic strength of the student.
To meet the decathlon requirements, the student must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,900, be ranked in the upper 10 percent of the class and have taken upper level courses in mathematics, science, English and foreign language.
The student also must have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen and be involved in a school activity program.
