AACS Senior Is National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist

AACS Senior Is National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist
Posted 09/12/2014 12:40PM

Annapolis Area Christian School is pleased to announce that senior Andrew Henry is a 2015 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist.  About 1.4 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest- scoring entrants in each state. The number of Semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

To become a Finalist, Andrew and AACS must submit a detailed scholarship application, which will include information about his academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record through-out high school, be endorsed and confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.

From the approximately 16,000 Semifinalists, about 15,000 are expected to advance
to the Finalist level, and in February they will be notified of this designation. All National Merit Scholarship winners will be selected from this group of Finalists. Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference.

Principal McCollum explains; it is such an honor for Andrew to be recognized in this way, it’s a big deal to be one out of 1.4 million students who entered the program. God gifted Andrew with fantastic intelligence; he has also been a good steward of those gifts and uses them well.  Andrew is consistently demonstrating godly humility.  Congratulations Andrew!
