W.T. Clarke High School senior Jonathan Melkun was named a National Merit Scholarship Winner on May 8 by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

Jonathan was among 2,500 Merit Scholar designees chosen from a pool of more than 15,000 outstanding finalists. His selection was due to a combination of accomplishments, skills and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

Since being named a finalist in March, Jonathan has decided on attending Princeton University this fall with the intention of majoring in mechanical and aerospace engineering. He was also announced the Class of 2019 Valedictorian. 
Additionally, Jonathan earned All-Conference honors as a member of the winter track and field team. He also performed as a member of the pit during the school’s theatre show “Chicago” in March.

The district congratulates Jonathan for this prestigious honor.
