To become a Finalist, a Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student's earlier qualifying test performance. Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
“We are incredibly proud of these students for their work and dedication in achieving such significant honors,” said Superintendent Rebecca Miner. “We are also grateful for the amazing staff and community who continually support the highest levels of success in our school communities.”
