Four Byram Hills High School seniors have been named finalists in this year’s National Merit Scholarship competition.
The students are Alan Chang, Elyse Kanner, David McDaniels and Nicole Tissot.
Principal Christopher Walsh offered his congratulations to the finalists.
“We are very proud of their accomplishment and they are terrific representatives of the Byram Hills community,” he said.
The Byram Hills students are among more than 15,000 finalists who are competing for approximately 7,500 scholarships worth more than $31 million.
The finalists, who are recognized for very high academic achievement, were chosen from more than 1.6 million high school students in 22,000 schools across the nation who took the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. They represent less than 1 percent of all high school seniors in the country.
