Four seniors earn National Merit recognition

National Merit 2021Join us in congratulating seniors Joey Ellingson and Andrew Nordhagen, whose PSAT scores have qualified both as 2021 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists. Both were among the top 1 percent of more than 1.6 million students who took the PSAT exam.
This yearly competition is widely known for rewarding the highest PSAT/NMSQT scorers. From the 1.6 million, 15,000 will be selected as finalists, and just 7,500 will be selected in the spring as winners of the $2,500 scholarship.
Seniors Evan Duchesne and Shobhin Logani scored among the top 3 percent to earn Commended Scholar status. Commended students also qualify for special scholarships.
