Three GHS Students Named National Merit Semifinalists
Glenwood High School seniors (pictured, left to right), Lillian Frazee, Grace Kang, and Alexa Wienhoff were named National Merit Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®)!
There are approximately 16,000 semifinalists this year in the 68th 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 nearly $30 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 95 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
Congratulations Lillian, Grace, and Alexa!!!
