5 valley students named National Merit Scholars

Five Clark County School District students were recently named National Merit Scholars, a prestigious honor bestowed to about 1,800 high school seniors across the nation each year.

The national scholarship recognizes students who scored among the top 1 percent of the 1.5 million students taking the Preliminary SAT exam, a run-up to the SAT college entrance exam.

The program is run by the National Merit Scholarship Corp., which, along with its partners and donors, has given more than $700 million in scholarships to high school seniors since its inception.

Here are the names of the local National Merit Scholars and their schools:

• Nicholas Andrew, Coronado High School

• Marcy Brown, West Career and Technical Academy

• Tyler Michael, Palo Verde High School

• Owen Steward, Clark High School

• Kamen Tsvetkov, Las Vegas Academy
