Congratulations to WHS National Merit Semi-Finalists

Wilton High School recognized two students who have been named National Merit Semifinalists in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Rachel S. Pak (right, below) and Derek A. Thomas (left) took the fall 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors. Nationally, more than 1.5 million students took the exam and approximately 16,000 were named National Merit Semifinalists. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than one percent of United States seniors. These students have the opportunity to continue in the competition for Merit Scholarship awards that will be offered next spring.

Library Screens All American High Revisited Documentary

Wilton Library invites residents to join and view the New Perspectives Film Series screening of All American High Revisited. The screening will take place on Saturday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m..

In 1984 — before cell phones, the web, and reality TV — a young filmmaker set out to document a year in the life of a typical California high school. The result was All American High, an honest and humorous look at ’80s teen life. The film presents an uncensored view of senior year in the era of big hair, punks, and parachute pants. Thirty years later, the film’s original subjects return in All American High Revisited to look back at one of the most memorable chapters of their lives.

The suggested donation to attend is $5 per person. Refreshments will be served. The New Perspectives Film Series is programmed and moderated by filmmaker Megan Smith-Harris. Advance registration is highly recommended. For more information, please call 203.762.3950, ext. 213.
