Island School's Sullivan is National Merit Scholarship semifinalist”

Northgate High School's Arthi Shankar and Spencer Thomas are among 16,000 US high school students to be named as semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. They join almost 16,000 other potential scholarship winners in the competition to win a Merit Scholarship.

The National Merit Scholarship Corp.is a nonprofit established in 1955, and its scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and more than 400 businesses and higher education institutions. About 15,000 students are expected to move on to become National Merit Finalists, which should be announced in February.

Time spent in the library is paying off for a Howell student who is in the running for a distinguished scholarship. About 16,000 students-less than one percent of USA high school seniors-get the marks to become Semifinalists.

As a semifinalist, Garcia will continue in the competition for 7,500 available National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million next spring. The student must be recommended by a high school official, submit an essay, and be a top scorer on the SAT exams, which are widely used by colleges in the U.S.to determine admissions. All NMS winners will be selected from this group of finalists. National Merit Scholars are selected on the basis of skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

The finalists will be announced in the spring.

Other semifinalists from Lake County include Steven Bengele, Kristen Buse, Michael Chen, Michael Ferro, Nathaniel Molby and Noah Rolfes from Mentor High School and Luke Marino from Willoughby South High School.
