Four CHS/MST seniors named National Merit Finalists!

We are proud of these CHS Papermakers! Congratulations goes out to Angela Xu, Abigail Jiang, Maia Kawamura, and Monica Chang (left to right), who have been recognized as National Merit Semi-finalists based on their PSAT scores from last year. Way to go, Magnetos!

The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. In early September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state. NMSC provides scholarship application materials to Semifinalists through their high schools. To be considered for a National Merit® Scholarship, Semifinalists must advance to Finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and all other requirements explained in the information provided to each Semifinalist.
