Congratulations to Highland senior Joey Grecenuk, who is a finalist in the 2022 competition for a corporate-sponsored Special Scholarship administered by National Merit® Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®). Joey is now included in a pool of high school award candidates based on his performance on the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). Every year some 1,000 National Merit Program participants, who are outstanding but not Finalists, are awarded Special Scholarships provided by corporations and business organizations. To be considered for a Special Scholarship, students must meet the sponsor’s criteria and the entry requirements of the National Merit Scholarship Program. They also must submit an entry form to the sponsor organization. These scholarships may either be renewable for four years of undergraduate study or one-time awards.
A member of the National Honor Society, Joey also serves as a DARE Role Model and Peer Leader at HHS. He is the son of Frank and Denise Grecenuk of Montville Township and plans to attend college to study business upon his graduation from Highland.
