10 RHS Seniors Named Finalists in 2023 National Merit Scholarship Competition

Ten Roslyn High School students have been named Finalists in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Competition—Mohammad Balasinorwala, Jessie Dong, Jake Konigsberg, Lydia Lee, Emelie Nguyen, Catherine Ren, Arya Sinha, Brian Song, Sophie Weisman, and Stanley Zhao.

These academically talented students now have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million that will be offered this spring. The students are among 15,000 nationwide to be named finalists, representing less than one percent of high school seniors in the United States.

“Congratulations to all our students who earned this distinction,” said Roslyn High School Principal Dr. Scott Andrews. “It is a truly exceptional academic achievement.”
