Congratulations to Ashlynn Brodie, Lillian Felkner and Samantha Molino on being named 2022 National Merit Semifinalists!
These GLHS Seniors are among 16,000 semifinalists in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation selects students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies. Less than 1% of students across the nation receive this recognition.
The 67th annual scholarship program will award nearly $30 million to 7,500 high school finalists in the spring. In addition to a high score on the PSAT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), National Merit Finalists must also be recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn SAT or ACT scores that confirm their performance on the qualifying test. Finalists’ names will be announced in February, followed by the winners’ names being released April through July.
Congratulations to these talented students and all the GJPS teachers and staff who have touched their lives along the way!
