National Achievement scholarship winners

Two students at high schools in the Diocese of Oakland were among approximately 800 outstanding Black American high school seniors who have won Achievement Scholarship awards through the National Achievement Scholarship Program, the National Merit Scholarship Corp. announced April 9.

Olivia Bernadel-Huey of Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland, and Khloe N. Heath, of Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, will each receive a $2,500 award sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corp.

The National Achievement Scholarship Program is a privately financed academic competition established in 1964 specifically to honor scholastically talented Black American youth and to provide scholarships to a substantial number of the most outstanding participants in each annual competition. By the conclusion of the 2014 program, which marks the 50th annual competition, about 33,400 participants will have received scholarships for undergraduate study worth more than $105 million.

Of the 800 students receiving awards, 700 receive $2,500 awards, while 100 got corporate-sponsored Achievement Scholarship awards.
