The National Merit Scholarship Program has determined which of the 16,000 semifinalists named in the fall have met all requirements to advance to finalist standing in the competition. We are so excited to announce that the National Merit Scholarship Program announced 66 SHS Finalists! Of these students, some will go on to be National Merit Scholarship winners, which will be announced later this summer!
