Congratulations to National Merit Semifinalist

Congratulations to WHS Senior Brian Kelly (pictured here with Principal Keith Schenker) for being named a National Merit Semifinalist. He was one of approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

The semifinalists were chosen based on their scores in last fall’s Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, taken by about 1.6 million high school juniors. They represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors.

The 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.

Great job!
