It is my honor to inform you that Wyatt Combs, Jackson Spears, and Yisu (Marisa) Yang have advanced to “Finalist standing” in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. Of the original 1.6 million students that qualified for the program, these three students have demonstrated “distinguished performance and high potential for future academic accomplishment” and were therefore selected to continue in the process. Historically, only about 8,000 students nationwide are awarded the title of National Merit Scholar. We will know by mid Spring if any of our three students will be awarded the title of a National Merit Scholar.
Travis Gabehart and I presented Wyatt, Jackson, and Marisa with their Certificates of Merit this afternoon. Please congratulations our three Knights for advancing in the program and reaching this milestone. Wish them luck as they enter the final round of the selection process.
Mr. Mathew George, Ed.S.
