Owens Parker from Bartow High IB is a National Merit Scholarship winner.
Parker was one of more than 3,300 winners of college-sponsored National Merit Scholarships announced today. The awards provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.
Parker’s scholarship is from the University of Florida. He is the second National Merit Scholar from PCPS this year. Last month, Lakeland High’s Karol Aleman was announced among the winners of $2,500 National Merit Scholarships.
A final list of National Merit Scholars will be announced in July.
