Munster High School is proud to announce that 10 students have recently qualified as finalists for the National Merit Scholarship program. The National Merit Scholarship program began in 1955 as an academic competition, awarding scholarships to the nation’s most promising students. In order to become a National Merit Scholarship Finalist, students must have an exemplary score on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Qualifying Test. Approximately 1.6 million students take the PSAT each year and finalists are whittled down to the top 15,000 students in the nation. Munster High School would like to congratulate the following students for their selection as National.

In this lecture, Ed Humes will expose how waste lies at the heart of all the big problems of the day–the economy, energy, national security, climate, diminishing natural resources–crises that would be much smaller, and might not exist at all, were we not the biggest wasters on the planet. Waste is the biggest thing America makes today, our greatest legacy, product, and export. But Humes will also share the good news: There is a way back. Families, businesses, and communities are finding inspiring and ingenious ways to offset this damaging legacy. Humes inspires audiences to get behind the one big environmental and social problem that just about anyone can do something meaningful to change. This event is free and open to the public.
