It’s officially Fall Break, Choctaws! We will see you back on Monday, October 10, 2022. Enjoy your break.
UPDATE:We have worked closely with law enforcement. They were able to determine that the threat had nothing to do with our school system. We appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation.
The Dyer County School System takes the safety and security of students very seriously and are committed to keeping them safe while receiving an education at school. This morning we received information pertaining to a perceived threat. Dyer County Schools implemented our security procedures to keep students safe. We will be adding extra safety precautions to our day. The Dyer County Sheriff's Department is continuing to investigate any issues. We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day.
Congratulations to Seth Baker and Conner Liddell on being named Semifinalists in the 2023 National Merit® Scholarship Program!
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 95 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 340 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC's goals of honoring the nation's scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.
“To say that we are very excited about Seth and Conner being selected as Semifinalists in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program is an understatement!” stated Dyer County Schools Director, Cheryl Mathis. “Both young men have a strong academic record and demonstrate their leadership in school activities. Being chosen as Semifinalists is such an honor since less than one percent of graduating seniors are chosen for this award. We will be anxiously awaiting news in February to see if they are awarded National Merit Scholarships.”
