20 Greenwich HS Students Recognized for PSAT/NMSQT® Performance
Twenty Greenwich High School seniors have been recognized as 2024 National Merit® Scholarship Program Semifinalists, the most semifinalists of any high school in the State of Connecticut. These students will now have the opportunity to continue in the competition for 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered in the spring.
The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an annual academic competition for recognition and college undergraduate scholarships based on their Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) scores. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of all U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
“The students of Greenwich High School continue to produce incredible achievements and accomplishments our entire community should be proud of year after year,” GHS Principal Ralph Mayo said. “Not only should these 20 seniors be commended, but each teacher, administrator, and staff members that helped inspire them should be applauded for their dedication and commitment to the students of Greenwich.”
These students will be recognized by the Board of Education at an upcoming business meeting.
