The National Merit Scholarship Program recently announced that Kristin N. Meyer, a senior at St. Bernard Preparatory School, has been named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. She will be competing for approximately 8,200 merit scholarship awards valued at over thirty-five million dollars to be awarded next spring.

Kiki, as she is known by her friends, is the daughter of Ms. Mary Sullivan of Cullman, AL. While at St. Bernard she has been involved in many leadership programs such as the Model UN-Vice President; Cullman Youth Leadership; and Hugh O’Bryan Youth Leadership. She currently is serving as the President of the Senior Class. She volunteers time at her school, animal shelter, and sunshine center. She recently spent time in Kenya as part of a cultural exchange program. She actively participates on the school’s basketball, volleyball and softball team. Kiki is a member of Junior Classical League, Mu Alpha Theta, and National Honor Society.

“We are proud to see Kiki achieve this distinction,” said Barbara Rasplicka, Guidance Director at St. Bernard Prep School. “She not only is academically gifted but she also has a strong work ethic. She participates in a wide range of extracurricular activities from athletics to the fine arts. She is the kind of student that sets goals and achieves them.”

John Odle and Nino Yutiamco were named Commended Students, and have been recognized for their exceptional academic promise.
