Greenville ISD Celebrates four outstanding students that earned national recognition 

Leading the way is Michael Adeluyi, a Senior at GHS, who has achieved the prestigious title of National Merit Scholar Semi-Finalist. Michael has been a student in Greenville ISD from the beginning, starting Pre-K at L.P. Waters and then attending Crockett Elementary.   

During his high school years, his passion for robotics led him to immerse himself in VEX Robotics and become an integral part of the Robwranglers Robotics team. These experiences ignited a fiery passion for math and engineering within him.   

"I appreciate the support that GISD has given me over the years and the opportunities I've had to be involved in things like robotics. My extracurricular experiences provided by GISD has fostered a love of math and engineering."  

As a National Merit semi-finalist, Michael Adeluyi finds himself in the exclusive company of less than 1 percent of the nation's top high school seniors. His journey is a testament to hard work, determination, and the boundless support of GISD.  

So, here's to you, Michael, and the incredible journey you're on. Your community applauds your achievements, and we can't wait to see where your passion for engineering takes you next. 

But Michael is not the only shining star at Greenville High School. Joining him in the limelight are three remarkable students who have also garnered national recognition for their stellar PSAT scores. 

Angel Torres Castillo has been honored with the National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar (NHRP) award, recognizing his outstanding performance and ranking among the top 2.5% among Hispanic and Latino PSAT/NMSQT test-takers in the region. 

Mary Thurmond and Nadenka Hallonquist have both earned the title of National Rural and Small-Town Recognition Scholar (NRSTA). This prestigious accolade acknowledges their exceptional PSAT scores and their unwavering commitment to academic excellence and their respective communities. 

These students and their remarkable accomplishments are a source of immense pride for the school and the community, and they serve as inspiring role models for current and future students. Congratulations to these exceptional individuals, and may their futures continue to shine brightly, with Michael leading the way.
