Students Earn College-Sponsored National Merit Scholarships

Georgia Tech and Emory College, the undergraduate division of Emory University, has awarded National Merit Scholarships to three students who will begin studying at their institutions in the fall.

Justin Buchanan, Starr’s Mill High, has received a scholarship from Georgia Tech where he will major in mechanical/electrical engineering; Graham Bloomsmith, Starr’s Mill High, and Erika Burgess, McIntosh High, both received scholarships from Emory. Graham plans to major in economics; Erika is planning to study forensic pathology.

The college-sponsored scholarships provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship. These three students are among 2,900 graduating seniors nationwide who were awarded scholarships in the first announcement of winners. Another group of winners will be announced in July, bringing the total number of college-sponsored scholarship recipients to approximately 4,800.
