A love for science and a gift for academics opened the door for Wadena-Deer Creek Senior Emily Hunt's recognition as one of 50,000 students in the 2007 National Merit Scholarship program.


Hunt was named a commended student due to her high score in the Preliminary SAT. Qualifiers in the National Merit Scholarship program were selected from 1.4 million entrants.

The honor surprised Hunt, she said.

"I didn't think I did all that well on the test," she said.
