Putnam County Schools would like to congratulate Jacob Holtzapfel and Brayden Marshall of Winfield High School on being selected as semifinalists in the 69th annual National Merit Scholarship Program!   Nationwide, semifinalists represent fewer than 1% of United States seniors. Of the more than 16,000 semifinalists, about 95% are expected to achieve finalist standing, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship. The National Merit Semifinalists will go on to compete for approximately 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million offered in the spring.    Finalists will be notified in February 2024, and National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April 2024 and concluding in July.   Good Luck Jacob & Brayden! #PutnamProud

On behalf of Putnam County Schools, Superintendent John Hudson, and the Putnam Board of Education, we wish our high school juniors the best of luck tomorrow during the SAT School Day test!   The SAT is a nationally recognized college and career-readiness assessment and allows students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. PCS students have consistently performed well, scoring higher than the state and national average. This accomplishment reflects not only our students' hard work and dedication but also our Putnam educators, school staff, communities, and families. While seeing our students perform well on the SAT is rewarding, it is also important to remember that test scores measure academic achievement and do not define a student's potential or worth. So, as we support our juniors tomorrow during testing, we hope you will join us in collective encouragement.   Good luck, Juniors! You've got this!
