Two Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists
Congratulations to Leor Fishman and Daniel Schopf on qualifying as National Merit Program Semifinalists, an honor awarded to less than 1% of the state's high school seniors. The National Merit Scholarship Program is an annual academic competition for recognition and college undergraduate scholarships. Each year more than 1.5 million students in more than 22,000 high schools enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/NMSQT and meeting other academic milestones. Leor and Daniel now have the opportunity to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in the spring of 2016. Commended scholars will be announced later this season.
