Earlier this week, officials of National Merit Scholarship
Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000
semifinalists in the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.
Among those names were eight Shaker High School seniors: William
Austin, Sara Berg-Love, Ryan Casserly, Gregory Hickey, Sahir Jaggi,
Paul Lee, Annabel Lewis and Aidan Snyder
These academically talented students will now
have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,300
National Merit Scholarships worth more than $34 million that will be
offered next spring.
To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award,
semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the
finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the
semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and more
than half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship,
earning the Merit Scholar title.
