These studious seniors now have the opportunity to advance to the finalist level of this competition. There will be 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth approximately $33 million to be offered next spring. Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level for the Merit Scholarship.
“Avon High School is proud to have four of our students named as Semifinalists,” said AHS Principal Matthew Shockley. “They have distinguished themselves as outstanding academic students. Their families deserve credit for their commitment to education. Having these students honored also speaks to the quality teachers and education received throughout their school careers. All ACSC staff should celebrate this success!”
About 15,000 of the 16,000 semifinalists should advance to the finalist level and will be notified in February. The National Merit Scholarship winners will be selected from this group. Learn more about the National Merit Program at www.nationalmerit.org.
