HHS Students Named 2020 National Merit Semifinalists


Officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 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.  

Congratulations to Miranda Bartz, Elena Chen, Andrew Conarty, McKenzie Duby, Jessica Melvin, Nathan Phuong, Bethany Villaruz and Katherine Walther.
