Carlmont Students Make National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist List

Three students from CHS are among the semifinalists for the prestigious scholarship program.

The list of semifinalists in the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Corporation, released last week, included three students from Carlmont High School.

Semi-finalists in the academically prestigious competition will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,300 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $48 million, to be offered next spring.

Only the top 1 percent of applicants in the nation receive National Merit finalist recognition, which they enter each year by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The standardized test measures critical reading, math problem-solving and writing skills.

Congratulations to the following students from Carlmont High School:

Luke Li

Natasha D. Sandy

Joseph S. Walters
