Cornerstone Academy is happy to announce that senior,
Joshua DeLisle, has been named a finalist in the National Merit Scholarship
Program. This is an honor that only the top 1 percnet of all high school
seniors can claim.
About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high
schools take the PSAT/NMSQT® qualifying test which, along with other academic,
community, and leadership criteria, determines eligibility to receive
scholarship money and the honor of academic distinction.
Cornerstone Academy is thrilled that their mission of
providing academic excellence has served Joshua well, and is proud of his
dedication to and diligence in the investment of his education. Interim
headmaster, Dr. Byron R. Greene, shared that “Joshua is gifted with a fine
mind, and he has chosen to make the most of his academic opportunities. He is
an articulate and engaging young man, and we look forward to seeing what the
future holds for him.”
