This year, 34 local students earned the prestigious distinction of becoming finalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship program. Of the over 1.6 million students who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, only about 15,000 students were named as finalists. Finalists were chosen not only for their PSAT scores, but also their SAT scores and general academic performance. Congratulations to our local finalists for all of their hard work!
