Two San Luis Obispo Classical Academy high school students have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Caleb Campbell and Virginia Harding were recognized for their outstanding academic promise. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corp., which conducts the program, will be presented to the seniors.

Commended Students placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 national competition, according to a news release from the school.

Blue Shield of California Foundation recently announced that it is awarding $20,000 in unrestricted funds to the SLO Noor Foundation.

As a safety net provider, the Noor Foundation clinics provide free medical, vision and dental healthcare to uninsured adults throughout the county.

“While our patients receive services free of charge from our volunteer healthcare professionals, there are definitely costs to operate a free clinic and we very much appreciate BSCF’s grant to help with core operating expenses like rent, insurance, utilities, and more,” said Dr. Ahmad Nooristani, founder and CEO of the foundation.
