Congratulations to Amelia Poole and John Sipp for being named National Merit Finalists!

At the beginning of the school year, over 1.5 million students nationwide applied to the prestigious National Merit Scholarship program.  Earlier this  fall, Amelia and John were among the top 1% of students in our state based on their PSAT scores and overall high academic performances and, subsequently, named semi-finalists. Last week, both Amelia and John were chosen to be National Merit Finalists!

The final step is the Merit Scholar® designees selection which will begin next month and continue into mid-June. Of the original 1.5 million students, approximately 8,000 finalists will be chosen as designees.  We are extremely proud of Amelia and John and wish them the best in this final phase!
