September 20 Special Board Meeting
The next regularly scheduled board meeting is on September 25, 2018 at 6:30 PM.
Ben Gustafson, a Seguin High School senior, is one of two Guadalupe County semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.
The honor is a result of Ben’s 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test scores that place him in an elite group, representing less than one percent of all U.S. high school seniors. The semifinalists represent the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
A semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.
From the approximately 16,000 semifinalists across the country, about 15,000 are expected to advance to the finalist level in February.
A Seguin ISD student since second grade, Ben is an actively involved in the Matador Band and a member of the National Honor Society. He spends much of his class time as a dual credit student at TLU.
“Ben’s National Merit Semifinalist achievement is truly well deserved. He is an outstanding, well-rounded student who has demonstrated academic success across the board during his Seguin High School career. We are proud of Ben for earning this prestigious honor,” said Hector Esquivel, Seguin High School principal.
His parents are Wendi and Mark Gustafson of Seguin.
