    4H students

    Congratulations National Merit Scholars

    Congratulations to seniors, Matthew Cerep and Charles Pettinato on receiving National Merit Scholar recognition.

    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 (PSAT/NMSQT®)—which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.
