Congratulations to our National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Students

National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Students

Two Cor Jesu seniors have been named 2022 National Merit Semifinalists. Congratulations to Julia Hartweger and Samantha O’Leary.

Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of approximately 16,000 semifinalists.  These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 15,000 National Merit Scholarships. 

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.

Congratulations also to Edith Behrens, Kathryn Hamel, Caroline Hite, Elizabeth Meister and Maya Roukoz who were named as National Merit Commended Students for their exceptional academic promise out of more than 1.6 million students who took the PSAT/NMSQT in October 2020.

Commended students placed among the top 50,000 scorers who entered the 2022 competition by taking the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Our five Cor Jesu seniors join about 34,000 other Commended Students who are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.

Congratulations girls on this outstanding accomplishment.
