Byram Hills High School is proud to announce that five seniors have been named Finalists in the 2021 Competition for National Merit Scholarship awards. The students are Jordyn Bernard, Luke Briody, Talia Dinstein, Jared Ilan, and Kathryn Petlyuk.  
Over 1.7 million juniors took the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Test in October of 2019, and more than 15,000 were named Finalists.   
“This year, five of our students earned the prestigious distinction of becoming Finalists in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship program,” said Ms. Kristina Wilson, Byram Hills Guidance Department Chairperson. “Finalists were chosen not only for their PSAT scores but also for their SAT scores and general academic performance. Congratulations to our Finalists for earning this honor.”

Beginning in March and continuing to mid-June, NMSC, National Merit Scholarship Corporation, notifies approximately 7,600 Finalists that they have been selected to receive a Merit Scholarship® award.
