Significant academic achievement . . .
Will Huntington is National Merit Finalist

Bay High senior Will Huntington has been named a National Merit Finalist. He earned the prestigious academic distinction with his score on the 2015 Preliminary SAT (PSAT). The nationwide pool of finalists represent less than 1 percent of the 1.6 million students from 22,000 U.S. high school who take the PSAT in their junior year.

Will plans to major in economics and has narrowed down his choice of schools to Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Harvard and Yale. The Rockets baseball player would like to coach baseball as a teacher, but he also has a strong interest in the nonprofit world. He has been his school’s leader each year in organizing the St. Baldrick’s fundraiser. “I’ve been involved with St. Baldrick’s, shaving my head, since seventh-grade,” he said, and noted that he will be leading the effort again this year at Bay High. He has held leadership positions in Bay High’s Youth Philanthropy Fellowship, and Student Council.


He has volunteered with Bay High’s PAL group assisting students with special needs, as a cook at Village Project, and as a tutor and mentor at Cleveland Boys and Girls clubs. He is a member of National Honor Society. He has also traveled to Kentucky with the Appalachian Service Project to work on repairing homes of low income people.
