National Merit Scholarship Program

October 10, 2018

RHS seniors recognized by National Merit Scholarship Program

Nine RHS seniors are receiving special recognition this fall for scores they achieved on a national standardized test taken last year as juniors.

Two of the students have been named semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. They are:
Olivia Alberts and Michelle Quan

Seven of the students have been named 2019 National Merit commended students. They are:
Jennika Bunney, Abigail Doran, Sydney Essler, Sophia Kucera, Jacob Liggett, Justin Rygg and Aquila Schachel

Students are selected for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program based on their scores on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which they take as juniors. Semifinalists rank in the top 1 percent of the approximately 1.6 million high school juniors who took the test last year in the United States. The semifinalists may submit additional information to be considered for selection as a finalist. Students named National Merit finalists will compete for some 7,500 scholarships totaling more than $31 million that will be awarded next spring by businesses, colleges and universities, and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
Students whose scores on the PSAT/NMSQT rank them in the top 5 percent of students nationwide receive letters of commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.
