Hilburgh named a Missouri 100 Scholar


Anna Hilburgh, a senior at Waynesville High School, has been named to the 2020 Missouri Scholars 100 Program, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri's top academic students in the graduating class of 2020.


“This is one of the premier academic recognition programs in the country because it looks at not only academic success, but also character and school involvement,” said WHS Principal Randy Luebbert.


Students are scheduled to be recognized at a luncheon in Columbia, Mo., on Sunday, April 26, 2020.


Missouri Scholars 100 is a program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals. Schools across Missouri were invited to nominate candidates for this statewide recognition. The selection is based primarily on a formula using the student's grade point average and ACT or SAT score. Each student nominated had first to meet the criteria of an "Academic Decathlon," which included 10 "events" designed to assure the academic strength of the student. The student must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,600, be ranked in the upper 10 percent of the class and have taken high level courses in mathematics, science, English and foreign language. The student must also have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen, and be involved in the school activity program.
