National Merit Recognition

Seniors Zachary Geizer and Kathleen Moorman have been commended by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their outstanding performance on last year’s Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT). News of this honor follows the announcement earlier this month that senior Joseph Cermak is a National Merit semifinalist.

As commended students, Zach and Katie scored among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who took the test nationwide last October.

“Katie and Zach’s accomplishment is impressive, especially since there is a razor-thin margin between National Merit commended students and semi-finalists,” said Principal Joseph A. Waler.

Current NDCL juniors have the opportunity to join the elite ranks of National Merit scholars when they take the PSAT on Oct. 16.

Scholarship Raffle A Success

NDCL’s annual student scholarship raffle had a successful fall drive, with 7,147 tickets sold to bring in $35,735. Proceeds of the drive support student scholarships.

The NDCL community is grateful to everyone, especially the students, for their support. The winning tickets were drawn during the homecoming rally on Oc.t 4.

Congratulations to the big winners.

Winning tickets: Renee Hayslip, $10,000 grand prize; and Colleen Martin, $2,500 second prize.

Student sellers: senior Doug Hayslip, winner of 2014 Chevy Cruze; and junior Nicki Martin, $500 prize.

Bloodmobile Collects 35 Units

The American Red Cross and NDCL’s Future Medical Careers Club thank everyone who donated in the first blood drive of the school year on Sept. 27. According to the Red Cross, the almost 40 units of blood collected will provide life-saving help to over 120 patients throughout northeastern Ohio.

This drive would not happen without the hard work of science teachers Carlotta Mack and Maureen Wahl and members of the Future Medical Careers Club, especially juniors Lili Meadows and Jackie Gueulette.

A special thank you goes to the Chardon Zeppe’s for donating pizza to the drive.

Mark the calendars for future blood drive dates on Feb. 7 and April 4.

Golfers Advance To States

Congratulations to members of the boys and girls golf teams who will represent NDCL in state tournaments this week.

By tying for second place in last week’s Division II boys district golf championships at Windmill Lakes, NDCL’s boys varsity golf team will advance to the state tournament at the North Star Golf Resort on Oct. 11 and 12. Scores for the Lions were seniors Chandler Walnsch, 73; Jacob Rosenberg, 81; Paul Lewandowski, 83; Jack Egan, 83; and sophomore Corbin Walnsch, 84. The boys golf team is coached by Mrs. Toni DeSanto.

Sophomore Reva Morris will compete in the Division II girls state tournament at The Ohio State University’s Gray Golf Course, also on Oct. 11-12. Reva was the district tournament medalist at Tam O’Shanter Golf Course with a score of 73, two over par. The girls golf team is coached by Mr. Sam Rayl.

The NDCL community sent the golfers off in style with a clap-out on Oct. 9.
