Celebrating 11 National Merit FinalistsNMF  
Of the 15,000 students in the country who received the top academic recognition of National Merit Finalist, eleven are students in our District. The nationwide pool of Finalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.

To become a Finalist, the Semifinalist and his or her high school must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the Semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn sat® scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.
Our finalists and their parents were recognized at the March 9 Board of Education Meeting. Congratulations to our National Merit Finalists!
