Four NH students named ‘Rising Stars’

Four North Harrison High School juniors were selected as Rising Stars of Indiana after being nominated to the program by their school. The students — Oxiel Castro Badillo, Kelsey Delaney, Jeremy Satterfield and Alyssa Spurlock — were selected based on academic success in the classroom, advanced course selection and standardized test scores.

Rising Stars of Indiana is a non-competitive recognition program through the Indiana Association of School Principals’ Dept. of Student Programs that is designed to honor high school juniors for their academic achievement. By allowing schools to identify outstanding scholars during their junior year, the program hopes to increase their visibility and scholarship opportunities.

Each Indiana high school can recognize up to four individual students.

A total of 1,020 juniors from 262 schools were selected.
