Smith-Cotton High School senior Logan Fluty has been selected for the 2014 Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri’s top academic students in the Class of 2014. Fellow senior Abby Monsees received honorable mention for the award.
According to a news release from the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals, which sponsors the program, nominated students had to meet criteria of an “academic decathlon” which included events to test the academic strength of the nominees. Eligible students must have a minimum grade-point average of 3.75, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,900, be ranked in the top 10 percent of their class and have taken upper-level courses in math, science, English and foreign language. In addition, nominees must have excellent attendance, be exemplary school citizens and be involved in the school activity program.
In the news release, principals’ association Executive Direct Jim L. King was quoted as saying: “Students who are selected to this program have taken a rigorous course of student and have 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.”
Fluty and Monsees will be recognized at a luncheon April 27 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia.
