CDO has three students who have moved from Semifinalist to Finalist status for the National Merit Scholarship. There will be some 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners announced in March, and here are our 3 Dorados who are still in the running:
The Academic Decathlon team handily won its 20th consecutive regional Academic Decathlon title this weekend. Up against 10 other teams from across southern Arizona, the team of nine students easily dominated the competition, coming out well ahead of 2nd place Cibola and 3rd place Morenci. In fact, CDO’s score was the highest in Arizona and puts them as the top seed going into the state championship on March 12 and 13, which will also be virtual.
Individually, Matthew Ceja finished at the top of his division and earned a special prize for the highest overall score. Dylan Kmiec and Trevor Torres also finished at the top of their respective divisions. John Hartman earned a special trophy for having the top essay at the competition. Also earning medals were Lincoln Rasmussen, Sean Jacobsen, Mackenzie Gist, Erika Ashes, and Tarina Lindberg.
Congratulations to all of these students for doing an outstanding job during an extraordinary year.
