Taylor, Ralph W.
The Marshall University Search Committee on Recruitment of Excellent Students (SCORES) program, is intended to encourage good students in West Virginia to attend college and to encourage them to choose Marshall University. SCORES is an annual recognition of academic excellence among high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. High school teachers and counselors are contacted and asked to identify students with a grade point average of 3.0 or better in the subject area in which they wish to compete. Each spring an academic festival is held on campus, and approximately 100 tests covering all academic disciplines are administered. Participating students may be from West Virginia, southern Ohio, and eastern Kentucky. In 1987 and 1988, approximately 3500 students participated, and 4000 are expected in 1989. Awards are given at the end of the day to both students and schools. Followup letters and certificates are sent to all who did well on the tests, with invitations to visit and apply to the university. (KM)
