Tom Brennan, Class of 2016, was named as a Semifinalist in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program. About 1.5 million students in some 22,000 high schools enter the National Merit Scholarship competition anually when they take the PSAT which measures critical reading ability, mathematics problem solving, and writing ability. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent the top 0.5% of the state's seniors. Tom now has the opportunity to continue in the competition for Merit Scholarships to be awarded next Spring. Congratulations, Tom! We are proud of your accomplishment!
