Congratulations to senior Keith Mills, originally designated as a semifinalist in the 59th annual National Merit Scholarship Program, has been selected as a finalist in the competition. It is a notable honor for Keith to be chosen as one of the approximately 15,000 finalists nationwide. Keith now has the opportunity to compete for one of 8,300 National Merit Scholarships offered in the spring.

Earning the title of Merit Scholar is an honor that will be bestowed upon more than half of the students who achieve finalist standing.

“I’m very proud to be named a National Merit Finalist,” said Keith. “I’ve worked very hard throughout high school, and it’s nice to be recognized for that. It’s an honor, and my academic drive comes from my parents, who have both pushed me to succeed and supported me over the years.”
The district congratulates Keith on this accomplishment and wishes him the best of luck as he continues on the path toward becoming a Merit Scholar.
