KathrThe National Merit Scholarship Program was founded to identify and honor scholastically talented American youth and to encourage them to develop their abilities to the fullest. Their mission is to promote scholastic excellence and recognize students who exemplify this goal. This is a very rigorous competition. Scholarship winners are chosen based on their abilities, skills, extracurricular accomplishments, and potential for success in college and beyond.
Lyme Old Lyme High School is proud and honored to recognize and congratulate Kathryn Atkinson, Kylie Hall and Hannah Morrison for their achievement of reaching the finalist level of this scholarship program. Kathryn, Kylie and Hannah are among the top 3% of students in our nation who have achieved this goal.

The New England Music Festival was established in 1927 it is one of the oldest music festivals in our country and the first conductor of this festival was John Philp Sousa. Students are adjudicated at a Solo Ensemble Festival and if they score high enough, they are chosen to participate in the Concert festival. This year’s concert festival was held at Woodstock Academy in Woodstock CT March 21-23, 2019. We are very proud of the six students chosen for this honor Kate Cheney, Nevin Joshy, Benton Arafeh-Hudson, Cameron Gagnon, Jonathan Hamilton and Haley Stevens.

Congratulations to the Lyme / Old Lyme Science Olympiad team for their 2nd place win at the state Science Olympiad tournament!
The Lyme/Old Lyme Science Olympiad team worked relentlessly all year to earn back our title as State Champions for the Science Olympiad tournament but our incredibly talented competitors from Westport advanced to the National Tournament where they will surely represent us, and the rest of the state well.
Our resiliency, perseverance, grit, work ethic, and our immense talent have only grown from this year’s competition and we are looking forward to our next season with excitement and glory. Until then, we will be celebrating being the 2nd best team in the State of Connecticut because that is quite an impressive honor that we are all incredibly proud of! Congratulations to all the competitors! J
There are 23 different STEM events in a Science Olympiad competition and the Lyme-Old Lyme teams earned medals in 17 of the 23 events demonstrating excellence across the board. Our team brought 7 gold medals, 10 silver medals, and 7 bronze medals back to our great community.

The Lyme-Old Lyme team would not function without the coaches and mentors who spend so much of their time with our Olympians!
