Five Wyoming High School seniors have been named semifinalists in the 69th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically-talented students, Andrew Burns, Avery Feller, Carter Hagenauer, Avi Rosenberg and Roxy Sorensen, are among the 16,000 students from across the nation who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered this spring.
To qualify as a semifinalist, students earned top scores on the 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Over 1.3 million juniors in about 21,000 schools entered the program by taking the 2022 PSAT. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
"It is such a great accomplishment to be recognized as a National Merit Semifinalist. Their hard work and dedication to their studies and extracurricular activities is truly impressive,” said Wyoming High School Principal James Stallings. “Congratulations to Andrew, Avery, Avi, Carter and Roxy!"
