Michael Coppa of Stanhope Elmore High School is a winner in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship competition. Chad Walls - SEHS Assistant Principal informed The Indy that Coppa won the scholarship award. The $2,500 scholarship can be used for Coppa's higher education.

He is involved in the school's Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps where he serves as the Delta Company Commander in charge of 31 Cadets.

"Michael sets the example for his cadets on a consistent basis and his leadership style allows for open communication and an effective command climate. Micheal has also been a member of our Academic and Drill Teams," said Wes Whitaker, Senior Army Instructor at SEHS.

Michael is also a member of the National Honor Society, and Science National Honor Society. He volunteers to work in the office at the Millbrook Middle School as well.
