To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, students must fulfill several requirements and about one-half of the Finalists are selected as Merit Scholarship winners, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
As a finalist, Henry has maintained outstanding academic records throughout his high school years, has been endorsed and recommended by his school principal, and has earned SAT scores that confirm his qualifying test performance.
Henry also had to submit a detailed scholarship application, including a self-descriptive essay and information regarding his participation and leadership in both school and community activities. Petters is currently a member of the Loretto Chapter of the National Honor Society, Science Olympiad, Mu Alpha Theta, Concert Band and Marching Band Drum Major. Henry is the son of Brian and Vicki Petters of Montgomery.
This August, Montgomery Catholic senior, Angeles Gonzalez-Ansaldi, won the title
