Congratulations to seniors Matthew Gower, Alaina Le, Ty Martin, Catherine Whitehead for earning the distinction of Semifinalist this year for the National Merit Scholarship Program and to Sam Vandiver, recognized as a Commended Scholar for earning the distinction of semifinalists this year for the National Merit Scholarship.  

These students were among more than 1.5 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools across the country who entered the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants.

The nationwide pool of semifinalists, represents less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors, including the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
