TMI student earns National Achievement honor

Phillip Greenfield, a senior at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas, was named an Outstanding Participant by the National Achievement Scholarship Program.

To qualify for this honor, students must score in the top 3 percent of more than 160,000 African American students who took the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). A roster of these students’ names is sent to about 1,500 colleges and universities.

At TMI, Greenfield is a member of the National Honor Society and has won a top award in the National Spanish Examination. A member of the track team, he qualified for the TAPPS state meet last spring.

The National Achievement Scholarship Program was initiated in 1964 to honor academically promising African American high-school students. The annual scholarship competition is conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
