Congratulations to the following seven seniors for being named National Merit Scholarship Competition semifinalists. The group is among approximately 16,000 high school students, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. According to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, the students selected as semifinalists must have outstanding academic records, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn SAT scores that confirm the student's earlier performance on the PSAT. Congrats to Zooey Arnold-Connor, Timothy Clancy, Dylan Gastel, Shannon Holley, Lilian Kong, Charles Nickerson and Yang Tang.
