The Delavan-Darien School District is proud to announce that two students from Delavan-Darien High School have been named as 2021 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists. Seniors Michael Cobb and Breanna Yartey are two of 16,000 students from throughout the nation to be named as semifinalists for this prestigious scholarship opportunity. Michael and Breanna represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors which includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. Three types of Merit Scholarship awards will be offered in 2021: National Merit $2,500 scholarships, corporate-sponsored scholarships, and college-sponsored scholarships. Merit Scholarship winners will be announced in spring 2021. According to the National Merit Program’s website “The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. Approximately 1.6 million high school students enter the program each year. High School students who meet published program entry and participation requirements enter the National Merit® Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) at the specified time in the high school program, usually as juniors. Each year's PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test designated for entry to a particular year's competition. For example, the 2019 PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test for entry to the competition for scholarships to be awarded in 2021.”
I am very excited to be taking on the role of Head Coach for the upcoming Cross Country season. Before arriving in Delavan 17 years ago, I was the Boys/ Girls Cross Country Coach for 8 years in another district which also happened to be called the COMETS. I also coached the DDSD distance runners for a span of 6 years a number of years ago. I am very passionate about running and excited at the opportunity to instill the drive, commitment, and confidence in becoming a distance runner. It's Never too late to sign-up!! -No benches, No subs, No half-time, No time-outs ...Welcome to Our World. -Coach Wrubbel
