Moorehead scores in top 2.5 percent

MOORE COUNTY — Moore County Schools officials announced this week that one of their own scored in the top 2.5 percent of all high school juniors taking the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT /NMSQT is the practice version of the Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT) and the qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship.

That score earned Moore County High School junior Audrey Moorehead an invitation to apply for the College Board National Recognition Program (CBRP), which recognizes students in regions who identify as rural areas and small towns.

To be considered, students must complete a brief online application and a school official must also complete supporting online verification. The physical awards for all recognized students are sent directly to a school official to distribute at the school level sometime after July. Participation in the CBRP will enable Moorehead to highlight her educational achievements as she applies to colleges.

Audrey is the daughter of Chad and Lisa Moorehead of Moore County. •
