CARTHAGE, Mo. — A Carthage student now ranks among the top achieving students in the nation.
CHS Senior Lee Goetzinger has been named a National Merit Semifinalist.
That puts him in the running to become a National Merit Scholar, opening up eligibility for millions of dollars in scholarships.
Goetzinger scored a 35 on his act and has a grade point average of 4.16.
“Linguistics is kind of my passion but math is just my favorite class — which I love math too. I’m leaning toward linguistics but I’m a little bit worried about job prospects for that. I also like anthropology,” said Lee Goetzinger, Natl Merit Semifinalist.
Goetzinger is still weighing his options for college, saying he’s applied to several schools in Missouri — as well as a few out-of-state.
