Willow Springs senior named to 2024 Missouri Scholars 100 program

Willow Springs High School senior, Madalyn Poor, has been named one of the top students in the state through the 2024 Missouri Scholars 100 program.
 
This statewide initiative, organized by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals, recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of 100 outstanding students from the graduating class of 2024.
 
The announcement of Maddie Poor's selection for this esteemed academic honor was made by Nick Schmitt, Willow Springs High School Principal. The recognition will culminate in a special luncheon hosted in Columbia, MO on April 21.
 
"It is a great honor for Maddie to receive this award," said Schmitt. "Maddie is a very well-rounded student. She is a leader academically and in student organizations. I am happy she has been recognized for her accomplishments."
 
Missouri Scholars 100 is a competitive program that invites schools across the state to nominate candidates based on academic excellence. The selection process employs a formula considering the student's grade point average and ACT or SAT scores. Nominees must meet the criteria of an "Academic Decathlon," successfully navigating ten challenging academic events to showcase their scholastic strength.
 
To qualify, students must hold a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,280, rank in the upper ten percent of their class, and engage in advanced coursework in mathematics, science, English, and foreign language. Additionally, nominees must exhibit excellent attendance, exemplary citizenship within the school, and active participation in the school's activity program.
