National Merit Program Tabs 16


Last week, 16 seniors were recognized as National Merit semifinalists and commended scholars.

The commended scholars were part of about only 34,000 other students in the nation chosen by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to be distinguished.

Semifinalists Ben Ahn, Jacob Caudell and Michael Prappas are part of about only 16,000 other students in the nation  who qualified for that prestigious recognition.

Each student is awarded this status based on their score on the PSAT, which they took during their sophomore year.
