Congratulations to seniors Casandra Moisanu and Mia Santomauro, who were recently named National Merit Scholarship winners in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program based on their academic accomplishments!

The students were among 7,500 scholarship winners chosen from 1.6 million entrants to receive a National Merit $2,500 Scholarship to use at any accredited college or university in the United States.

Both students were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors, who examined their academic records, including difficulty level of subjects studied and grades earned. The committee also reviewed an essay written by each student, scores from two standardized tests, student contributions and leadership in school and community activities and a letter of recommendation written by a high school official.
