Scholarship Exams
Five students from the local
Torchlight chapter of the National
Honor Society gathered Tuesday
morning March 18, 1952 to take
a General Aptitude Test which if
passed with high enough grades
would yield most helpful scholar
ships.
Eligibility rules require that the
candidates be members of an ac
tive and authorized chapter of the
National Honor Society, and those
members who will graduate and
be admitted to some accredited
college between September 1,
1951, and September 1, 1952.
Those students of- the local chap
ter and who were chosen by their
fellow members to represent
Greensboro High School were:
Bain Alexander, DeArmon Hunter,
Richard Ledbetter, Ann Wrenn,
and Steve Leonard.
If a scholarship is won by one
or more of the candidates he or
she may use the award for any
fees that the college requires with
the same classification as scholar
ship winners, such as tuition, lab
f®es, gymnasium, etc. In addition
to the fifty-five moneyed scholar
ships there is one travel scholar
ship to Brazil, expenses paid. The
trip will last for several weeks
during the summer of 1952.
A scholarship Board of five
nationally known school adminis
trators for the National Associa
tion of Secondary-School Princi
pals and the National Honor
Society will administer the
scholarships. The fund is largely

of Owatonna, Minnesota as a pu
bic service. The winners will be
announced around May 15, 1952.
