Runnels Senior Named National Merit Finalist


Runnels senior Aubri Watts has advanced to Finalist standing in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program competition. As a Finalist, she will be considered for National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in the spring.
To become finalists, semifinalists must maintain outstanding academic records throughout high school, receive the endorsement of their high school principal, and submit SAT scores confirming their prior performance on the initial qualifying test. All National Merit Scholarship winners will be chosen from the finalist group. Scholarship awards will be announced starting in March of 2020.
“Being selected as a National Merit Finalist opens up an enormous number of additional scholarship opportunities,” said Runnels Jr./Sr. High Assistant Principal Dana Schlotterer. “Watching Aubri work toward this milestone over the last four years has been a privilege. She could not be more deserving of this honor. We cannot wait to see what she accomplishes in college." 
Aubri is the daughter of Dr. Amanda Watts and Neal Watts.
