Raiders Have Two National Merit Semifinalists
Congratulations to Seniors Saya Abney and Lily Schneider for being selected as semifinalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship program.
Based on their outstanding scores on the PSAT taken during their Junior year, Abney and Schneider join an elite group of approximately 16,000 high school seniors from across the country. As semifinalists, the students now must fulfill several requirements in order to advance to the finalist round. They must have a record of high academic performance, be endorsed and recommended by the school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm their earlier qualifying test performance. Additionally, the semifinalists will complete a detailed scholarship application, which includes a self-descriptive essay and information about participation and leadership in school and community activities.
