PBHS Seniors Selected for State Academic Honor
Poplar Bluff High School seniors Namara Haq and Zain Siddiqui were selected as honorable mentions in the Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals that honors the top academic students in the graduating Class of 2015.
Each student nominated had to meet criteria of an “academic decathlon,” which included 10 events designed to assure the academic strength of the individual, according to the MASSP. To meet the requirements, the student must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,900, be ranked in the upper 10 percent of the class, and have taken upper level courses in mathematics, science, English and foreign language. The student must also have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen, and be involved in the school activity program.
