SUGAR LAND (Covering Fort Bend News) - Three seniors from Fort Bend Christian Academy have been named National Merit Commended Students in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. Isaiah Dailey, Megan Ogden and Brennan Vacek achieved the honor for a program that has existed for more than 60 years and continues to acknowledge and reward exceptional high school seniors.
Commended Students are current high school seniors who took the PSAT their junior year and scored among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the competition.
Dailey is active in the fine arts program at FBCA. His competition performances have earned him selections to TPSMEA and TAPPS Honor Choirs. Theatre is also an important creative outlet for Dailey, performing in a variety of plays and musicals. He plans to study Electrical Engineering.
Ogden is a member of National Honor Society (NHS), Mu Alpha Theta and the Medical club. She has been involved in many theatre productions and is active in athletics as a student athletic trainer. Ogden wants to continue serving on medical mission trips as she pursues a nursing degree.
Vacek serves as President of Rho Kappa and Treasurer of FBCA’s Medical club. He has used his talents in guitar and theatre throughout his high school career. Vacek’s long-term plans are to attend law school and study patent law.
“The FBCA student is accustomed to striving for excellence in all that they do,” Joel Hazard, Head of Upper School, said. “These students and this academic achievement provide yet another example of the hard work and dedication our students display.”
Fort Bend Christian Academy is an independent, college-preparatory school for grades PK-12 located in Sugar Land, one of the most diverse communities in the United States.
