North High School student Osariemen Ogbemudia and Central High School student Monik Walters have been named Outstanding Participants in the 2015 National Achievement Scholarship Program.

Both students are among the top 3 percent of approximately 160,000 Black Americans who entered in the scholarship program when they took the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

The National Achievement Scholarship Program was initiated in 1964 specifically to honor academically promising Black American high school students.  A roster of the selected 3,100 Outstanding Participants was referred to approximately 1,500 colleges and universities throughout the nation.
