Brusly High senior Clay Gauthreaux is the only student in the parish this year to earn recognition as a National Merit Scholar. He is the son of Chris and Stacy Gauthreaux and brother of Max Gauthreaux. Gauthreaux is a member of the Beta Club, the basketball team and baseball team. He enjoys playing and watching sports and video games in his spare time. His favorite subject is math. 

After graduation, Gauthreaux plans to attend college. His favorite memory of Brusly High is the small-town feel and hospitality of the campus. To be a National Merit Scholar reflects hard work on academics and the positive impact on those around you, Gauthreaux said. 

The National Merit Scholarship Program was founded to identify and honor scholastically talented American youth and to encourage them to develop their abilities to the fullest. Through this nationwide competition, National Merit Scholarships are awarded to program Finalists and Special Scholarships are awarded to other high performing participants who meet a corporate sponsor’s eligibility criteria.
