The National Achievement Scholarship Program released an announcement today that Seven Hills senior Adam Buford is a winner of the prestigious National Achievement $2,500 Scholarship. Buford, also a National Merit Finalist, is one of only 800 African-American student applicants in the nation to receive this recognition.

Buford recently worked as an intern at a law firm in downtown Cincinnati and served as a youth docent at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Buford also participates in Model UN and Mock Trial, runs track, and reads to Seven Hills pre-kindergarteners in the school’s “Big Readers” program.

The National Achievement Scholarship Program, conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation, was initiated in 1964 to recognize African-American scholars throughout the nation and provide scholarships to the most outstanding program participants.
