TWO STUDENTS AWARDED SCHOLARSHIPS THROUGH NATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT SCHOLARSHIP CORPORATION

Two Anne Arundel County Public Schools seniors have received scholarships through the National Achievement Scholarship Program to pursue post-secondary endeavors.  The students are among a group of approximately 800 talented African-American students from across the country to be awarded scholarships totaling more than $2 million this year.

Phylesia Fralin of Meade High School and Adan Rodriguez of Arundel High School will each receive a single-payment $2,500 award to study accounting and film production, respectively. 

Conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, the National Achievement Scholarship Program has helped to support nearly 32,600 outstanding African-American students over the past 49 years.

Students are eligible to receive awards based on top-level performance on the preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT).
