Recognizes Lakewood, Co Scholar, Kicks Off #futures2bright Campaign
BookItOut, Inc., a leading software developer and information technology provider for the automotive industry, today announced that Andrea M. Gerdes of Lakewood High School in Lakewood, CO is the recipient of BookItOut's corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship for 2012. The National Merit Scholarship corporate awards are given annually to approximately 1,000 distinguished high school seniors across the country. Ms. Gerdes plans to attend the University of Denver in the fall and study business.
The National Merit BookItOut Scholarship awards its winner a generous 4-Year scholarship. The scholarship extends to young adults across America with a variety of career aspirations and college majors. 100% of proceeds from Premium Listings on BOOKITOUT.com (an automotive classifieds website) fund the scholarship, and BookItOut, Inc. also donates a portion of its annual earnings to the scholarship and other charitable causes.
"Innovation is a core principle at BookItOut. We are pleased to be a sponsor of the National Merit Scholarship program and to recognize some of America's finest youth as they become leaders of tomorrow," said Jonathan Hedy, Executive Vice President of BookItOut, Inc. "By supporting higher education and outstanding achievement among today's young scholars, BookItOut helps to ensure America's tomorrow, and the future of the world, rests in good hands. We appreciate the National Merit Scholarship Corporation helping us recognize and inspire young minds like Andrea's, while also creating lasting relationships that extend beyond college and into their professional lives."
Approximately 200 corporations and business organizations finance the corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship awards. Corporate sponsors provide National Merit Scholarships for Finalists who are children of their employees, who are residents of the communities the company serves, or who plan to pursue college majors or careers the sponsor wishes to encourage. National Merit Scholars are selected during a very competitive selection process from about 1.5 million students who participated in the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Semifinalists were then evaluated based on their written essays, extracurricular activities, leadership positions, and community involvement. Winners are judged to have the strongest combination of academic skills and achievement, extracurricular accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
