Horizon has 3 National Merit Semi-Finalists

Horizon Honors High School students Robert Baker, Kaitlyn Hofmann and Kelly Stinnett have been named National Merit Semi-Finalists this year.

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test – a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year – and by meeting published program entry/participation requirements.

Of all the entrants, some 50,000 with the highest scores qualify for recognition in the program.

To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship, semifinalists must advance to finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and all other requirements explained in the materials provided to each semifinalist.

For more information, visit www.nationalmerit.org.
