The Cary-Grove Interact Club is celebrating another successful year of gift giving! Led by Dean of Students Jim Kelly, they collected and organized over 700 gifts for low income students in Chicago as part of the Letters to Santa charity program. This year, not only did they receive the support of CG students, families and staff, but also Crystal Lake South! This generosity will lift spirits throughout Chicago. #D155Inspire
The National Merit® Scholarship Program named Matthew Kreiger, a Cary-Grove senior, as a 2022 National Merit® Semifinalist. Semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and are the highest-scoring students in each state, including the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
Matthew Kreiger is involved in comedy club, marching band, chess team, and math team at Cary-Grove. He plans to attend college and become an actuary.
“I would credit my wonderful teachers here at CG, Mr. Neff in particular, for being a wonderful influence through the comedy club,” said Matthew Kreiger.
High school students enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). The exam serves as an initial screening of about 1.6 million students each year.
Students will find out if they have advanced to Finalist standing in February.
