For the month of November, Sophomore Karishma Manchanda has been named the New Hampshire Scholar of the Month.  Sponsored by the NH Association of School Principals, the Francis Wayland Parker Scholar of the Month program is a state-wide initiative that recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of students across the state of New Hampshire.  Karshima has been named the state winner for the month of November and this is the second time she has won the honor; last year she earned the title as freshman.  

Karishma has a perfect 4.0 GPA in an advanced academic schedule at Central and she is involved in a wide range of extracurricular activities.  In addition to serving as captain of the math team, and a member of Key Club, Karishma volunteers at the local soup kitchen, and is a highly accomplished dancer.  To read about Karishma's essay and accomplishments, click here for the article in the Union Leader.

The Francis Wayland Park Scholar of the Month Program is an academic recognition award developed to promote academic recognition of students.  A panel of seven judges chosen from prominent citizens and business leaders in the state make the selection of the Scholar of the Month.  In May, all monthly winners and their families will be honored at an awards ceremony.  At that time, the Francis Wayland Parker Scholar of the Year will be announced and awarded a $2000 scholarship.  To learn more about the program, see your counselor.
