Three Byram Hills High School Seniors have been named semifinalists in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program.
The students are Christina Ferarri, Kallie Hoffman, and Elena Lowe.
"These three students have worked incredibly hard throughout their academic careers. I am very happy that they are being recognized for their achievements on a national level," said Principal Christopher Walsh.
The Byram Hills semifinalists were among approximately 16,000 chosen in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition which offers 7,600 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $31 million, to be awarded next spring.
“Over 90% of the semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship earning the Merit Scholar title,” according to a National Merit Scholarship Program release.
Kristina Wilson, Byram Hills Guidance Department Liaison said, "This is a wonderful accomplishment for our students; a high honor."
Byram Hills is extremely proud of the success of these semifinalists. Congratulations.
