Will Dodson Selected as Missouri Top 100 Scholar

Notre Dame Regional High School senior William Dodson was selected for the 2023 Missouri Scholars 100. The Missouri Scholars 100 is a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri’s top academic students in the graduating class of 2023. 

The Missouri Scholars 100 is a program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals. Schools across Missouri nominated candidates for this statewide recognition. The selection is based primarily on a formula using the student’s grade point average and ACT or SAT score. Each student nominated had to first meet the criteria of an “Academic Decathlon,” which included ten “events” designed to ensure the student’s academic strength. The student must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29, or a minimum SAT score of 1,280, be ranked in the top ten percent of the class and take high-level courses in mathematics, science, English and foreign language. The student must also have excellent attendance, be an exemplary school citizen, and be involved in the school activity program. 

Students will be recognized at a luncheon at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, MO, on Sunday, April 30, 2023.
