Shannan Selected For Missouri Scholars Academy

Scotland County R-I High School sophomore Thomas Shannan has been selected to attend the Missouri Scholars Academy at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

The academy is a three week academic program for 330 of Missouri's most talented and gifted sophomores. The program, in its twenty-seventh year, is conducted by University of Missouri officials.

The academy reflects Missouri's desire to strive for excellence in education. The program is based on the premise that Missouri's gifted youth must be provided with special opportunities for learning and personal development in order for them to realize their full potential. The curriculum focuses on liberal arts, and a variety of stimulating extracurricular activities. The academy enables students to be part of a unique learning community.

Thomas was selected based on a combination of grade point average, PLAN test score, and IQ testing. The academy runs June 12th through July 2nd.
