Please help us congratulate Byron Nunley!! This Musketeer is a semi-finalist to become a National Merit Scholar! Students are identified for this based on their PSAT scores, and Byron’s scores were near the top of the charts. He actually received a perfect score in some areas! There is a lot more to this young man than a sharp mind, though! His father informed us that he is a black belt in Bujutsu MMA (Byron never mentioned it)! Perhaps that’s why his teachers and staff say that his greatest quality is how humble he is. The list of school activities that he is involved in is nearly half a page, but he takes part in everything from cross country, marching band, Future Business Leaders, and student council! When we talked to Byron, we were humbled by his response as to how he arrived at such a well-rounded senior year. He credited his teachers and counselors for being "super nice and supportive." He also credited his fellow students for being so inclusive and involving him. For example, he explained that he joined the soccer team after not playing for years due to encouragement from his classmates. As you can imagine, we are very proud of Byron. We wish him the best as he continues through the process of becoming a National Merit Scholar. Good luck, young man! This is just one of the many extraordinary things he’s going to accomplish! #BelieveInGC
