Sophia Prost named Top 100 Missouri scholar

SCW senior Sophia ProstSt. Charles West senior Sophia Prost has been selected for the 2022 Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri's top academic students in the graduating class of 2022. The announcement was made by Dr. Scott Voelkl, principal at St. Charles West High School. Students will be recognized at a luncheon at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, MO, on Sunday, May 1, 2022.

Missouri Scholars 100 is a program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals. Schools across Missouri were invited to nominate 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 criteria of an "Academic Decathlon" which included ten events designed to assure the academic strength of the student.

The student must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,600, be ranked in the upper ten percent of the class and have taken 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 school activities.

Congratulations to Sophia on earning this great honor!
