National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) has released the names of the first group of winners in the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Program – one of whom is Sunny Zheng from Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School.
With a probable career field of computer engineering, she has received a National Merit Parker Hannifin Scholarship – Parker Hannifin Corporation is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, and is a worldwide fluid systems manufacturer.
Approximately 1,000 distinguished high school seniors have won corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship awards financed by about 200 corporations, company foundations, and other business organizations.
Most of these awards are renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study and provide annual stipends that range from $500 to $10,000 per year. Some provide a single payment between $2,500 and $5,000. Recipients can use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university of their choice.
NMSC will name recipients of National Merit® $2500 Scholarships on May 8, and winners of college-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards on May 29 and July 15. By the conclusion of this year’s competition, about 8,000 academic champions will have won National Merit Scholarships worth over $35 million.

Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.
A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.
