Golumbeanu receives Merit scholarship

Dublin Coffman High School 2013 graduate Silvia Golumbeanu received a scholarship through the National Merit Corp.

Golumbeanu, who planned a career in English literature, snagged a corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship from the PwC Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit that supports people in need and "invests in emerging solutions to society's greatest challenges in education and humanitarianism," a release from the National Merit Corp. said.

National Merit Scholarships are awarded based on performance on the preliminary SAT, community involvement and performance at school.

Scholarships are usually announced in April or May, but the scholarship given to Golumbeanu became available after the annual announcement, the release said.
