Toby Cossairt Named National Merit Scholar
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition that began in 1955. This year, 1.6 million students entered, and senior Tobias Cossairt scored in the top 1%, placing him as one of 15,000 high school students with the highest PSAT scores in the nation. Toby has earned a National Merit Scholarship to the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where he will study Computer Science.
While enrolled at Saint Agnes, Toby was a founding member of the Engineering Club, a member of National Honor Society, clarinetist in the Concert Band, cast member of the spring musical, Latinist, lector at Mass and soccer player. Prior to graduation, he received departmental honors in Science, Latin and Band. Toby is also a recipient of the 2017 Palm Award, selected by the faculty. This is the highest school honor and it is awarded to one young man and one young woman who are well-rounded individuals who achieve excellence in virtually all areas: faith, academics, activities, athletics, character, virtue, leadership, friendship and service.
Congratulations to Toby on this outstanding academic achievement!
