On May 18, ConVal High School students who have qualified as New Hampshire Scholars took a field trip to the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester to take in a Fisher Cats baseball game.
Only a few students could take advantage of the field trip opportunity as the rest were working on class projects and either taking or preparing for AP examinations.
For this year, fifty prospective graduates have been confirmed as New Hampshire Scholars: Daniel Allen, KJ Ammon, Anita Anable, Liam Baldwin, Noah Bell, Marisa Bernabeo, Zachary Beymer, Isaac Blake, Jamilla Buzzell, Sage Cawthern, Sawyer Cawthern, Hannah Cheneau, Chloe Cheviot, Emalee Coutu, Oliver Ellerkamp, Caitlin Galea, Maria Gapp, Kaitlyn Giza, Becket Gourlay, Bridget Grady, Sylvie Holding, Juliet Hunt, Michelle Jarest, Sarah Johnson, Jordan Kania, Astrid Kipka, Dan Learn, Breanna Lester, Michael Long, Allison MacPhee, Emma-Rose Mellon, Colleen Minnihan, Gracyn Mose, Maeve Newman, Barrett Norton, Moriah Pabo, Trina Parslow, Megan Pelissier, Sarah Perrault, Jill Pierson, Caroline Riffle, Alexis Robicheau-Hall, Marlena Sorbello, Jacob Swain, Tierney Thompson, John Tyle, Rowan Tyne, Luke Wilson, Grace Wirein, Samantha Yeaw, and Michael Zrzavy.
The New Hampshire Scholars Initiative is an effort by area business and school volunteers to encourage and motivate all high school students to complete a defined, rigorous academic course of study that prepares them for successful transition to college or university coursework or vocational and technical training necessary to enter today’s competitive job market.
New Hampshire Scholars are high school students who have pledged to complete the State Scholars Core Course of Study, a specific sequence of academic courses in English, math, science, social studies, and foreign language. The New Hampshire Scholars philosophy is based on the belief that it is better to be successful in an academically challenging course than to get a higher grade in an easier course.
