Three Seniors Named National Merit Finalists

After being named National Merit Semifinalists in September, Eric Brandt ’21, Mollie Edmondson ’21 and Joe Rottinghaus ’21 applied for selection as National Merit Finalists. 
To become a finalist, the semifinalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, and write an essay.

After a review of their applications, all three were notified this week that they have been named Finalists, a distinction earned by less than 1 percent of seniors nationally!  Of the students named Finalists, approximately 7,500 will receive scholarship awards.
