Troy High School senior Noah Carter named a National Merit Finalist
Updated

The congratulatory letter was addressed to Noah Carter. 

But as far as the Troy High School senior was concerned, it may as well have been sent to every teacher he’s ever had at Troy.

“They’ve been the only reason I can get here, really,” said Carter, who found out Monday he has been named a National Merit Finalist. “Without my teachers, I probably couldn’t have gotten to half of this.”

Carter, the son of Julie and Jeremy Carter, recorded one of the top scores in the nation on the PSAT test, taken in the fall of 2022 by then-high school juniors. Last fall, he was notified he recorded one of the top 16,000 scores out of 1.3 million students who took the test and was a National Merit Semifinalist. Less than 1 percent of all students who took the test were named semifinalists.

From that pool of 16,000 semifinalists, 15,000 were named finalists. Carter now hopes he’s one of about half of the National Merit Finalists who earn a National Merit Scholarship. 

“I knew the odds were pretty likely, since they don’t do a very rough cutdown, but I’m still glad to have it happen,” Carter said of being named a finalist.

Carter has a 4.4 grade point average, which puts him in the top 10 of his class. He’s been on the principal’s list every semester in high school, and last year, was the Rensselaer Medal Winner as the to the top mathematics student in the junior class

He’s a member of the Troy Academic Quiz Team, which won the school’s first league title last year and earned a trip to state. He’s a member of the Math Club, Chess Club and Latin Club. He’s also done volunteer work for the Troy Historic Preservation Alliance.

Carter said he figured out early in his high school career his performance in the classroom could carry him a long way in life.

“I think the real moment was freshman or sophomore year, when I started realizing that these classes are who I’m going to be, what I’m going to know and these are setting the path for my future,” he said.

Carter will graduate from Troy High School in less than four months, and is looking at several possible colleges to attend after he graduates.

“I’d like to go into mechanical engineering and I’ve applied to a few schools, but I’m still not sure which one it’s going to be. I’ve applied to Princeton, Cornell, Rensselaer (Polytechnic Institute), Ohio State and the University of Dayton,” he said. “Right now it’s between Ohio State or Cornell, if the application comes back.”

No matter what his future holds, however, Carter said he’ll never forget where it all began for him.

“It’s meant the world; it’s a lot better than a lot of the neighboring schools, and I’m glad to be here as opposed to anywhere else,” Carter said.

Troy City Schools will be closed April 8 for solar eclipse
Updated

The Troy City Schools will be closed Monday, April 8. All of the district’s buildings, including the Troy Board of Education, will be closed that day.

As you are probably aware, Troy and the surrounding areas. will be experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime event, as a total eclipse will be coming to North America, with the path of totality running through the region. The time of totality will be approximately 3:11 p.m. and will last approximately 4 minutes. 

“This will be a once-in-a-lifetime event we hope our students and their families will take advantage of,” Troy City Schools Superintendent Chris Piper said. “This is not only a potential learning experience for our students, but a memory they can make and tell their children and grandchildren about some day.”

The reasons for closing school this day are twofold:

  • The biggest reason is this is expected to be a massive tourism event for Troy and the surrounding area that could bring hundreds of thousands to the area. It is almost certain traffic in the area would be affected. It only makes sense to keep our students and buses off the roads during this event.

  • Again, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event that we want students to be able to experience in whatever way they and their families choose. In addition to the safety concerns, we don’t want students to miss the eclipse because they are on a bus on their way home from school.

“From everything we’ve been told by experts and what history has told us about cities located near the path of totality in previous solar eclipses, Troy can expect a massive influx of tourists and others interested in the eclipse to the area,” Piper said. “We already know how traffic can be in Troy when school lets out, but this will only compound all of those problems. And it won’t just be during the eclipse. We fully expect thousands of people to arrive before the eclipse starts and stay after it ends. Out of an abundance of safety, we think it is best to close the schools for the day.

“Closing schools also allows students to watch the eclipse on their own or with their families. We hope all of our students take advantage of this opportunity, as it likely will never again happen in their lifetimes.” 

This will count as a calamity day for the district. 

Troy Athletics

All Troy athletic practices and games scheduled for April 8 will be canceled, as well. Any games, meets or matches scheduled for April 8 will be moved to April 9.
