Congratulations to Cedar Springs High School seniors Brittany Bellamy and Charles Hyde for being named 2011 National Merit Finalists by the National Merit Scholarship Program. In the fall, the Red Hawk Review highlighted these two individuals as Semifinalist qualifiers. Now, Brittany and Chuck have joined a select, national group of 15,000 finalists. In March, the National Merit Scholarship committee will begin mailing over 8,400 scholarship offers to the winners from the Finalist group. We embrace the anticipation, along with Brittany and Chuck, as we wait at least one of these scholarship offers to arrive in the mail. Everyone in the greater Cedar Springs community should celebrate and congratulate the academic accomplishment of Brittany Bellamy and Charles Hyde.
