9 Are National Merit Finalists

Nine Roslyn High School students of the Class of 2017 have advanced to become finalists after having been named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program last September.  These students are among 15,000 nationwide to be named finalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.  About 1.5 million juniors in about 22,000 U.S. high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). These scholastically talented high school seniors are now eligible for some 7,500 Merit Scholarship awards, worth about $33 million, that will be awarded this spring to students across the country.  Roslyn High School students who are National Merit Scholarship Finalists Roslyn High School Principal Dr. Scott Andrews (far right) is pictured with the finalists (l. to r.)
