Parnell Selected for State Academic Honor
Cassville High School senior Landry Parnell has received “Honorable Mention” 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 2022 program is the 28th Annual Missouri Scholars 100 recognition.
“Landry is, without a doubt, deserving of this honor,” stated Mr. Tyler Willis, CHS Principal. “In my short time at Cassville High School, I have found Landry to be kind, helpful and very trustworthy. Her academic achievements qualify her, but her character is what impresses me most. I am confident Landry will do great things after high school!”
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 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 1,6000, 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 the school activity program.
Parnell will attend Drury University in the Fall of 2022 where she plans to study mathematics and pre-engineering. While at Drury, she will also play on the inaugural Drury University Women’s Lacrosse team. She is the daughter of Suzy and Lance Parnell of Cassville.
