High school an­nounces Na­tional Merit Semi-Fi­nal­ists

The Boyertown Area Times - - RELIGION - Boy­er­town Area School District

The prin­ci­pal, Dr. Brett Cooper, of Boy­er­town Area Se­nior High is proud to an­nounce that se­niors Ryan Hop­kins and Tay­lor Win­ner have been rec­og­nized as Na­tional Merit Semifinalists in the 63rd an­nual Na­tional Merit Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram.

Ryan and Tay­lor were among ap­prox­i­mately 1.6 mil­lion ju­niors in more than 22,000 high schools en­tered the 2018 Na­tional Merit Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram by tak­ing the 2016 Pre­lim­i­nary SAT/Na­tional Merit Schol­ar­ship Qual­i­fy­ing Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an ini­tial screen of pro­gram en­trants.

Semifinalists have an op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue in the com­pe­ti­tion for some 7,500 Na­tional Merit Schol­ar­ships worth more than $32 mil­lion that will be of­fered next spring. Semifinalists must ful­fill sev­eral re­quire­ments to ad­vance to the Fi­nal­ist level of the com­pe­ti­tion and be con­sid­ered for a Merit Schol­ar­ship® award. The na­tion­wide pool of Semifinalists, rep­re­sent­ing less than one per­cent of U.S. high school se­niors, in­cludes the high­est scor­ing en­trants in each state.

Boy­er­town Area Se­nior High would like to wish Ryan and Tay­lor the best of luck as they move to­wards the Fi­nal­ist level of com­pe­ti­tion. #BASDPride
