Each year we build an end table as a culminating project in Manufacturing Technology I. This past school year we took it a little farther by including an inlaid checkerboard. This addition to the table was an option. There were about 15 students that chose to do this with their tables. The results were fantastic and I am sure we can include this again next school year.

We, the staff of Ambridge High School, would like to extend warmest wishes and congratulations to Ruthann Weedon. Ruthann is completing her junior year and was chosen as a National Merritt Scholarship Semifinalist based on her PSAT score of 1450. About 1.5 million students in some 22,000 high schools enter the National Merit Scholarship competition annually when they take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring program entrants in each state and represent the top 0.5% percent of the state’s students.
Semifinalists have to fulfill requirements to advance to Finalist standing. Each Semifinalist submits a detailed scholarship application, which includes essays and information about extracurricular achievements, awards, and leadership positions. Semifinalists also must have an outstanding academic record, be endorsed and recommended by a school official, and earn SAT scores that confirm their qualifying test performance. Ruthann recently took the SAT exam and scored 1500 out of a possible 1600 which puts her well on her way to becoming a finalist!
Ruthann is active in her school and community. She plays the flute and oboe in band and is a member of the Robotics Club. As a gifted student she participates in Academic Games and earned a perfect score in the Equations competition. She is also involved with the Girl Scouts and works at a Girl Scout camp in the summer.
Ruthann plans to graduate from Ambridge Area High School in 2017 and attend college to pursue a career in robotics. We wish her continued success in her academic endeavors!
