Scott County High School senior Wilson Insko has been selected as a National Merit Finalist. This distinguished honor is attained by less than 1% of the 1.6 million high school juniors who took the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) in the fall of 2018.
“Wilson Insko is undoubtedly among the best and brightest students I’ve worked with in my 15 years of teaching,” Katie Booth reflected. “Yet it is his unfailing good nature, his ability to bridge gaps between disparate members of his class, and his willingness to pursue his passions that makes me so happy his hard work and character have been recognized by the National Merit program.”
Insko was chosen through an extensive application process, which included documentation of his high school academic record, awards, community involvement, and school leadership. He joins a long list of scholars from SCHS who have reached this impressive level of achievement along with National Merit semi-finalists, commended students, and special scholarship winners.
“The SCHS Cardinal family is extremely excited for Wilson and this amazing accomplishment,” stated Principal Meocha Williams. “As his principal, I couldn't be prouder that a young man of such high character, work ethic, and leadership is being recognized with such a distinguished honor.”
Wilson Insko is the son of Lee and Cynthia Insko. As a National Merit Finalist, he will continue the competition for scholarships worth more than $31 million to be awarded this spring.
