Senior Selected as Winner of National Merit Scholarship
Senior William Gore was selected as a winner of the National Merit $2500 Scholarship. This Scholarship is underwritten by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) with its own funds.
From approximately 1.6 million students who entered the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program, only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists. They were designated on a state representational basis, in proportion to each state’s percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors. In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, a Semifinalist had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance. All winners of about 7,500 National Merit Scholarships are being chosen from the group of approximately 15,000 distinguished Finalists.
