Rockwood Students Earn Selection to Missouri Scholars 100

A total of five Rockwood School District students have been selected for the 2024 Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri's top academic students in the graduating class of 2024.

Ryan Watkins (Eureka High), Olivia Clerico and Luke Tipton (Lafayette High) and Rhianna Li and Ankush Vasireddy (Marquette High) are Rockwood's representatives in this year's class.

Now in its 30th year, Missouri Scholars 100 is a program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals (MoASSP). Schools across Missouri were invited to nominate candidates for this statewide recognition. The selection process employs a formula considering the student’s grade-point average and ACT or SAT scores. Nominees must meet the criteria of an "Academic Decathlon," successfully navigating ten challenging academic events to showcase their scholastic strength. Additionally, nominees must exhibit excellent attendance, exemplary citizenship within the school and active participation in the school’s activity program.

"The Missouri Scholars 100 Program is one of the premier academic recognition programs in the country," Clark Mershon, executive director of MoASSP, said in a release. "lt is truly a celebration of learning. Students selected for this program have taken a rigorous course of study and maintained the highest academic standards. The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals wants to celebrate the achievement and success of these students and their schools." 

Missouri Scholars 100 students will be recognized at a luncheon on Sunday, April 21, in Columbia.
