National Merit Scholarship Finalists – Winners

Written By: KPN - May• 15•17

The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

Of the 1.6 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT® Selection Index scores qualify for recognition in the National Merit® Scholarship Program. In September, these high scorers are notified through their schools that they have qualified as either a Commended Student or Semifinalist. In February, some 15,000 Semifinalists are notified by mail at their home addresses that they have advanced to Finalist standing.

All winners of about 7,500 National Merit Scholarships are being chosen from the group of approximately 15,000 distinguished Finalists.

The Kings Park School District is excited to announce that seniors, Anjali Verma and Kenneth He have been selected as Winners for the National Merit Scholarship.  Each senior will receive a National Merit Scholarship of $2,500.00.

Congratulations!

(Standing L to R – Mr. Lino Bracco-KPHS Principal, Anjali Verma, Kenneth He)
