SHHS Student Announced as National Merit Semi Finalist

about 1 year ago

Molly Davis, Scotts Hill HS Senior, has been named as a National Merit Semi Finalist. She is one of 16,000 students nation-wide and the first in SHHS history to receive this honor.

According to the National Merit Scholarship Program website, this program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.


Of the 1.5 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT® Selection Index scores (critical reading + mathematics + writing skills scores) qualify for recognition in the National Merit® Scholarship Program. In September, these high scorers are notified through their schools that they have qualified as either a Commended Student or Semifinalist.

In early September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state. NMSC provides scholarship application materials to Semifinalists through their high schools.

Classrooms had visitors from Westover, such as Mrs. Bethany Roach, one of Westover's assistants, read to Mrs. Debbie Morris's kindergarteners; and Mrs. Missy, our nurse, read to all the fifth graders.

Mrs. Frizzell's first graders celebrated Dr. Seuss' Birthday by making hats, reading Green Eggs and Ham, finding rhyming words, and playing "Pin the Eggs on the Ham!" Mrs. Crownover's second graders made party hats and had green eggs while she read Green Eggs and Ham then they had green eggs and ham with green pudding and cookie.
