Congratulations to seniors Samuel Atkins, John Doran, Colin Duffy, Samuel Forrest, Christopher Lin, Matthew Muellner, Daniel Noon and Matthew Rowe on being named Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition. This is a prestigious honor awarded to a select number of students across the country in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements.
“We are very proud that these eight seniors have been recognized for their efforts to excel academically,” said Head of School Jim Bopp. “Additionally, we are grateful for the wonderful teachers they have here at Prep and those they had before coming to us who helped them along the way. The value of making the most of an excellent education cannot be overstated and we are excited to have such outstanding representatives to applaud and look to as exemplars.”
According to the National Merit Scholarship Program site, approximately 1 percent of the 1.6 million students involved in the competition are named Semifinalists. Finalists will be named in February then a smaller group of those will be announced in the spring as scholarship recipients.
