Recently, Harborfields High School announced that senior Emma Johnston was named a semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship program. 

In order to be eligible for this achievement, students must take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test, which 1.6 million students take each year. Johnston took the test last October and her score placed her within the top 16,000 students nationwide—an outstanding achievement. To compete for one of the final 7,500 National Merit Scholarships, students must score well on the upcoming SAT, and continue their dedication to academic excellence. 

“I'm so honored to qualify for this opportunity. I think it's a testament to the great education I've had the privilege of receiving,” Johnston remarked. “I've had some fantastic teachers over the years, and I'm so grateful for their support.”
