Zander LitwinNature Coast Technical High School senior Zander Litwin has been named a National Merit Scholarship winner, earning a spot in the top 1% of high school students nationwide. He has also received a full scholarship to the University of Florida, where he will major in Computer Engineering.

Litwin is currently enrolled in the Technology Support Services program at Nature Coast and has been a member of the school's tech team for the past three years. The team is responsible for assisting students, teachers and administrators with technology-related issues. He is also CompTIA certified, a worldwide certification that boasts just a 30% pass rate, including among professionals.

Litwin was selected as a candidate for the National Merit Scholars based off of his near-perfect PSAT scores taken during his junior year. From that list of over 16,000 high school students, he made the cut to the less-than 100 students.

"Zander is the epitome of what a student-leader is," said Justen Early, Information Technology Instructor at Nature Coast. "Contrasting his exceptional academic gains and his humble and generous personality sets the standard for adolescents in our program. We are blessed to have played a part in this young man's success and can't wait to see his accomplishments in the future."
