RICHFIELD — At the Feb. 16 Revere Local Schools Board of Education meeting, the following students in the district were recognized:

• Revere High School student Colette Porter was named a 2010 National Merit Scholarship finalist. Porter will be considered for National Merit Scholarships to be offered this spring. Her scores on the PSAT placed her in the top 1 percent nationally of the 1.6 million students tested.

• The Revere Middle School cheerleading team took first place in the Revere Spirit Spectacular Nov. 8 and second place at a regional competition Jan. 24 at Berea High School. According to Nichole Bruce, the team’s adviser, the middle school cheerleaders are competing on an advanced level for the first time since they have incorporated more tumbling skills into their routines.

• Winners of the Revere Middle School spelling bee were Nolan Dyko (first), Anna Ling (second), Oliver Zhang (third) and Joe Merklin (fourth). All four competed in the Feb. 13 district spelling bee. Merklin and Dyko placed fourth and fifth, respectively, at the district competition and will move on to the regional bee March 13.

Twelve student writers penned creative stories during the tournament. The seventh-grade team had an individual winner in Becky Jarvis, who took home a fifth-place overall trophy for her grade. Additionally, five students qualified to compete at the regional level Feb. 20 at Kent State University: seventh-graders Jarvis and Prerana Ramadurgum and eighth-graders Carl Ahlborg, Olivia Detzel and Aria Alexander. Additional team members included seventh-graders Tyler Cai, Peter Feher, Drew Palla and Clarice Sigsworth, and eighth-grade team members Samantha Fergason, Anna Ling and Cecilia Salem.
