Two RUSD Seniors are National Merit Semifinalists
Case High School senior Shannon Kelly and Park High School senior Nicholas Sytsma are 2010 National Merit Semifinalists. Of the 1.5 million entrants across the country, approximately 50,000 students with the highest PSAT scores qualify for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Only 16,000, approximately one-third, of these students are named Semifinalists. They will now go on to compete for some 8,400 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $36 million. National Merit Finalists will be named in early 2011. They are chosen based on their academic records, endorsements and SAT scores, as well as essays and school and community activities. Congratulations to Shannon and Nicholas!
