Nine RHS Seniors Named Semifinalists in 2024 National Merit Scholarship Competition

Roslyn School District is proud to announce that nine Roslyn High School students have been named Semifinalists in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Competition. Congratulations to: Cole Goodman, Jacob Gross, Cayden Shen, Chloe Tseng, Lucas Weisser, Stephanie Yeh, Hanah Youn, Aasiya Zaidi, and Jacob Zwerling.

This distinction was earned by scoring among the highest in the state on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). The students are among 16,000 nationwide to be named semifinalists, representing less than one percent of high school seniors in the United States and includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. These scholastically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarship awards. Finalists will be announced in February 2024, with the National Merit Scholars to be named later in the spring.

"Congratulations to our exceptional students for their remarkable achievement in reaching the semi-finals of the National Merit Scholarship competition,” said Roslyn High School Principal Dr. Scott Andrews. “Your dedication, hard work, and commitment to academic excellence exemplifies the limitless potential within each of you.”
