Pope HS National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Students for the Class of 2019:

We are proud to announce the names of five Pope seniors who have been named National Merit Semifinalists:

  • Jacob Evans
  • Griffin Haarbauer
  • Edward Kokan
  • Maya Nambiar
  • Olivia Popovich

These students earned this recognition based on their outstanding performance on the PSAT taken last October during their junior year. Out of approximately 1.6 million juniors who entered the National Merit Program by taking the 2017 PSAT, these students are among less than 1%, or approximately 16,000 semifinalists nationwide, who will go on to compete for National Merit Finalist standing and National Merit, corporate, and college sponsored scholarships worth more than $31 million.  To be considered for National Merit Finalist standing, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements. We wish these Greyhounds luck as they continue in the competition.

We also had fifteen additional seniors recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program as Commended Students.  They are among approximately 34,000 students out of 1.6 million across the nation earning this honors:

William Cardin, Talia Cloud, Alejandro Espinel, Olivia Fertig, Hannah Rose Grant, Nathaniel Green, Sarah Jeffres, Nichole Kang, William Kim, Michael Landon, Trinity Pizzuti, Matthew Reingold, Elizabeth Santi, Jacob Smith, Spencer Van Buskirk.


We are very proud of all our Greyhounds being recognized by National Merit.  We commend our entire Pope community for the ways in which our students are supported to achieve extraordinary success!

LGE/CCSD Partnership - Pope Cards

The LGE Community Credit Union (LGE) has partnered with the Cobb County School District (CCSD) to support our schools and students. As a new feature of this partnership, LGE has created High School Spirit Cards where each high school in our district will have their own VISA card (Debit or Credit) that contains their unique high school mascot logo along with the logos for LGE and CCSD. This is a great opportunity for each high school community (teachers, staff, students and parents) to participate in that this program is designed to create team spirit in each high school environment while at the same time, create an opportunity for each high school to raise additional funding.

How can you get a LGE/CCSD VISA High School Spirit Card?

High School Spirit Cards are available now!  The High School Spirit Cards are available for teachers, students, parents and community members. If you are already an LGE member or want to join the LGE Community Credit Union, simply visit an LGE branch. LGE branches are conveniently located throughout Cobb County.

How will you and your high school benefit from this partnership?

As part of launching the High School Spirit Card program, LGE has given $1,000.00 to each high school for participating. On top of that, LGE will implement a revenue share with each high school. High School revenue sharing will depend on how many teachers, students and parents signup for the VISA card and how often they use their cards. The more participation and transactions a high school has, the more money that goes back into the pockets of each school.  In addition to benefiting the CCSD High Schools, if a teacher, student or parent has a High Rewards Checking account, they would also get 2.00% earnings every time they use their High School Spirit Card. In addition, they would also get 1.00% cash back on all VISA credit card purchases if they also sign-up for a High School Spirit Credit Card!

Tell me about LGE Community Credit Union and what products and services do they provide?

LGE Community Credit Union is a large, well respected credit union which offers a range of financial banking services including checking, savings, loans, insurance and more. (LGE High Rewards checking features 2.00% APY earnings on balances up to $25,000 based on HRC requirements. Additionally, LGE offers 1.00% cash back on credit card purchases). LGE members also have access to LGE Financial Advisors that can meet with you to uncover your needs and long-term goals, and then build a complimentary financial plan that will help you to determine a savings and investment strategy that is appropriate for you, your family, and your future.
