Two students at Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights earned $2,500 National Achievement scholarships.
Aaron W. Hudson, of South Holland; and Cameron C. Lewis, of Olympia Fields, were local winners of the scholarships.
The National Achievement Scholarship Program, conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corp., 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.
Some 800 National Achievement scholarships worth more than $2 million have been offered this year to outstanding high school seniors for college undergraduate study.
Award recipients are the National Achievement Program finalists judged to have the strongest record of accomplishments and greatest potential for academic success in college.
