Officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation have recently announced the names of National Merit Semi-Finalists. Episcopal is happy to congratulate Hayden Cresson, Jacob DeWitt, and Sienna Williams who have been named National Merit Semi-Finalists from the Class of 2017. We also congratulate Caroline Casey, John Harris, and George “Rory” McCracken for their recognition as National Merit Commended Scholars from the Class of 2017.
National Merit Semi-Finalists 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, Semi-finalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semi-finalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
Congratulations to these outstanding scholars!
