Lausanne is proud to announce that three of our seniors are semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.
We would like to congratulate Andrew Calkins ’19, Claire Kvande ’19 and Samantha Weiss ’19, for their hard work and dedication.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. Students enter the competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) during their junior year.
“This is a tremendous honor for these seniors,” Upper School Head Stuart Dunster said. “We are extremely excited for them and proud to have them as members of the Lausanne community.”
The semifinalist list will be sent to U.S. colleges and universities, and could potentially enhance the educational opportunities for our academically talented students. The three Lausanne seniors will also have the opportunity to move forward in the competition that will be announced next spring.
“We are extremely happy for these seniors and the academic effort they have put in over the years,” Headmaster Stuart McCathie said. “We are honored to celebrate them during this time and are positive these students have bright futures ahead.”
