National Merit Semifinalists
Sunnyslope High School is proud to announce that three students have earned the right to be called National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists. Congratulations to Austin Cotter, Samantha Orwoll, and Alexandra Meilech. The National Merit Scholarship competition, for which they are being honored, began with the PSAT test they took in the fall of 2012. Out of more than 1.5 million students that were tested nationwide, 16,000 qualified to be semifinalists. This distinction places Austin, Samantha and Alexandra in the top .01 percent of all test takers and opens the door for them to pursue being a National Merit Finalist where a Scholarship worth $15,000 awaits those who earn this distinction.
