GRB student honored for his academics


G. Ray Bodley High School student Ethan Wright has been named a Commended Student in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program.
He was recognized for his outstanding academic promise demonstrated by a top performance on the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
More than 1.6 million students entered the national competition for recognition and awards, but only five percent, or 34,000 students, were named Commended Students.
For his efforts, Wright received a Letter of Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
