STA Senior Selected for State Academic Honor

March 22, 2024

STA senior Anna M. has been named a 2024 Missouri Scholars 100 awardee. Missouri Scholars 100 is a statewide program that honors 100 of the state’s top academic students from the graduating class of 2024.

Missouri Scholars 100 is sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals. Schools from across the state nominated candidates for this prestigious recognition. Recipients are selected based on their grade point averages and ACT or SAT scores. Student nominees first had to meet the criteria of an “Academic Decathlon,” which included 10 activities designed to affirm the student’s academic strength. Requirements for consideration include a GPA of 3.75 or higher; a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1280; a ranking in the upper 10 percent of their class; and participation in high-level courses in mathematics, science, English and a foreign language. The student also must have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen, and be involved in the school’s activity programs.

Barbara McCormick, STA Principal for Academic Affairs, said, “I am thrilled for and proud of Anna. She is an accomplished academic and student leader who exemplifies a spirit of academic excellence and commitment.”

Anna and other Missouri Scholars 100 awardees will be recognized at a luncheon in Columbia, Missouri, on April 21.
