Three students from Bainbridge High School have been named National Merit Scholars.

Clio Batali, James Muir and Jonathan Owen were all awarded $2,500 scholarships by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

Each state’s finalists were judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. Batali said her probable career path will be chemical engineering; Muir will be pursuing mechanical engineering and Owen said he will be looking to pursue a career in microbiology/immunology.

Scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors, who appraised a substantial amount of information submitted by both the finalists and their high schools: the academic record, including difficulty level of the subjects studied and grades earned; scores from two standardized tests; contributions and leadership in school and community activities; an essay written by the finalists; and a recommendation written by a high school official.
