NBHS Senior Clancy Forlano

 

New Braunfels ISD is proud to announce Clancy Forlano, a senior at New Braunfels High School, has been named as a National Merit® Finalist through the National Merit® Scholarship Program.
 
Clancy Forlano has attended NBHS for all four years of his high school career. He has been a member of the Mighty Unicorn Band for four years and served two years as the trumpet section leader.

He is also a four-year member of the Marine Corps JROTC and served as the Company Executive Officer. He also participated in UIL Academics for four years and competed in the Current Events and Social Studies competitions.

For the past seven years he has been a Boy Scout and recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Outside of school, he is involved with the First United Methodist Youth Group.

He plans to attend Texas A&M University. He is the son of Richard and Kyle Forlano.
 
The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) – a test that serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year – and by meeting published program entry/participation requirements.
 
The national scholarship programs recognize students from all over the country for outstanding academic achievement by making a high score on the PSAT/NMSQT®. Students in the National Merit® Program are selected from the highest achievers and designated as either a Commended Students or Semifinalist in the first round. Only semifinalists advance to the final round to be named National Merit Finalist. In February, approximately 15,000 Semifinalists are notified that they have advanced to Finalist standing. Out of the Finalists, students are chosen to receive Merit Scholarships based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments – without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin or religious preference.
