Three Lausanne seniors have been honored with being named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition.
Lausanne seniors, Sam Hori '18, Allison Kerr '18and Milanca Wang '18, were among 16,000 names announced yesterday as National Merit Semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program.
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 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 about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
Students must be US citizens to be eligible for this competition.
Congratulations to our class of 2018 members on this fantastic honor.
