CCHS students named as National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists

This month, five seniors at Concord-Carlisle High School were named semi-finalists in the 48th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Those students are: David L. Ballard, Kevin R. Ballard, David R. Hale, Justin S. Hendrickson and William B. Payne. Last year, more than 1.3 million juniors across the U.S. entered the program by taking a qualifying test, with 16,000 named semi-finalists. These students now have the opportunity to advance to the finalist level of the competition. Winners will be eligible to receive scholarship awards, which will be offered next spring.

Julian Felch of Stearns Street was named a Dana Scholar at Bates College. Each year 20 Bates sophomores with strong academic backgrounds and leadership qualities are chosen as Dana Scholars, which they retain for the duration of their college careers. Their scholarship aid ranges from honorariums to substantial awards based on financial need. Felch, a sophomore dean's list student and a graduate of CCHS, was the recipient of the Albion Morse Stevens Award, during his freshman year.

Where in Carlisle?

The "tattooed poultry" sign, as shown in last week's Mosquito, is on Curve Street near Fisk Street. Poultry was tattooed, especially during depression days, because of two-legged thieves. It was Irene Peterson of Chelmsford who recognized the location and wrote in to tell us.
