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!

This year the Ambridge Area Junior High principal Mr. Shaun Cooke appointed a group of six staff members to form a committee dedicated to forming a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society. Ambridge Area School District has never in the past had the society at this level. The goal of starting this society with seventh and eighth graders is to not only recognize students dedicated to citizenship, service, leadership, scholarship, and character, but also provide students with a bridge that will guide them into future successes with the National Honor Society at the high school level.
This past Thursday, May 12th marked the first annual National Junior Honor Society Induction Ceremony. Twenty-six students were inducted at this time; notable speakers included Mr. Joseph Dimperio, Mr. Shaun Cooke, Mrs. Gen Scaletta, Ms. Brenna Wandel, Mrs. Chris Ceratti, and Captain Rudy Mistovich.
In addition to being inducted, reciting the NJHS pledge, and receiving their pins and certificates, the students also learned who among them had been elected as the society officers. Officer positions were determined by inductee votes. Congratulations go out to the following students:
Dinah Bailey, President
Elisabetta Pucci, Vice President
Kyla Fitzgibbons, Secretary
Samantha Farah, Treasurer
Congratulations also go out to all of the new inductees!
Dinah Bailey John Barnhart
Additional thanks go out to Mr. Glen Freed, Mr. Brad Olenic, and Mr. Ken Grafton for being a part of the NJHS Committes, Ms. Piontek for helping with rehearsals, Mrs. Peters for the lovely stage decorations, Mrs. Gladman for all of her behind-the-scenes help, and the PTG for the snacks and refreshments.
