National Achievement Scholarship Semifinalist
Senior Malashia Drummond from Spartanburg High School has been named a semifinalist in the 50th annual National Achievement Scholarship Competition. Malashia was among 48 Black American high school seniors encompassing public, private, and homeschools across the state to achieve the ranking nationwide, according to officials at the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
This coming spring Malashia will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 800 Achievement Scholarship Awards worth about $2.5 million. To advance to the finalist stage, a Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.
Jeff Stevens, Principal, Spartanburg High School, commented, “I congratulate Malashia on being named a Semifinalist, and look forward to hearing more about her accomplishments in the future.”
