AUSTIN NAPIER

Student honor

We congratulate Austin Napier on the honor he has brought to himself, his family, his school and the entire community by qualifying as a semi-finalist in the competition for National Merit Scholarships, the cream of scholarship offerings in the Unites States today.

Young Napier is the first resident of Letcher County to reach the semi-finals in the battery of tests which is given to applicants for the scholarships. He is one of the few eastern Kentucky students to qualify. His achievement points up the fact that an excellent student who applies himself can win scholarship honors for an eastern Kentucky high school and also points up the improvements which have been made in Whitesburg High School’s curriculum and quality over the past few years. 

We wish him well in his efforts to win the scholarship and hope to find his name among the list of recipients when the final results are known next April.
