The winners from Camarillo are Rebecca Gayle Mayper, who won the National Merit Arizona State University Scholarship, and Ashley A. Tarkiainen, who won the National Merit Pennsylvania State University Scholarship.
Officials of each sponsor college selected their scholarship winners from among the finalists in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program who plan to attend their institution.
These awards will provide between $500 and $2,000 annually for up to four years of undergraduate study at the institution financing the scholarship.
An additional group of scholars will be announced in July.
