2 in semifinals for scholarship program”

Elijah Cooper, a senior at Daviess County High School, has been named a 2018 National Merit Semifinalist.

The students are Madison Rutherford and Joshua Sun from Coronado High School and Justin Briggs, Alexander Dalfollo-Daley and Michelle Kummel from Palmer High School. The selected 2018 Semifinalists represent less than one percent of all US high school seniors, and are members of the highest qualifying entrants from each state. In April 2017, the 50,000 highest PSAT scorers were offered an opportunity in which to continue in the competition.

Congratulations to all students!

No local OH students made the semifinalist list. There are many ways to demonstrate that passion. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship.

The 15,000 finalists will have the chance to compete for National Merit Scholarships worth approximately $35 million, which will be announced in February. These scholarship recipients will join more than 330,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar title. The acclaimed BASIS Curriculum has cultivated excellent student outcomes every year since its founding in 1998, educating students at the highest worldwide levels and preparing them to be participants, not spectators, in the 21 century global workforce of commerce and innovation.

Semifinalists have to fulfill several requirements before they can advance to the final level of the National Merit Scholarship competition.
