Like any proud parent, Western Reserve Academy is thrilled to celebrate the exceptional Class of 2022. These seniors and post-graduates will soon walk across the stage on May 29, having completed their journey as students and entering into our esteemed society of alumni members. So many adventures await these talented young Pioneers, and we are eager to share where they are headed.
Their college destinations are taking them across the globe. With National Decision Day (May 1) behind us, we officially know that the members of the Class of 2022 have committed to an impressive list of 84 colleges and universities. These students, who among them hail from 17 different states and 12 countries, will be attending schools in 23 states and 2 countries.
Among them, you’ll find creative artists, recruited athletes, ambitious leaders, compassionate volunteers, national scholars and more. Specifically, we can share that 11 students received National Merit Scholarship recognition, including one National Merit Scholarship Winner, one College Scholarship Winner and nine Commended students.
More than 90 merit scholarships have been awarded to this class, including: Presidential Scholar, Boston University; Liberty Scholar, Drexel University, Morrill Scholar: The Ohio State University; Bonner Scholarship, Rhodes College; Founders Scholarship, Connecticut College; and 1783 Scholarship, Dickinson College.
Five class members have shared plans to pursue their talents in the fine and performing arts as musicians, film makers, studio artists. And 29 Pioneers have committed to play collegiate sports across Division I, II and III programs. Baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming and wrestling are represented in this list, and we look forward to cheering both our artists and our athletes from afar.
This year, our College Counseling Office took on the task of totaling the amount of scholarships received by our students. This information can only be shared voluntarily from the applicant, and with a little over 50% of the Class of 2022 reporting so far, we can share that this class has received more than $9.5 million in scholarships.
