Four High School Students Recognized as Finalists in National Merit Scholarship Program
Each year, more than 1 ½ million students take the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors. From this pool of students, 16,000 are selected as Semifinalists. The Semifinalists must complete an application, take the SAT and then the pool is narrowed down to 15,000 (less than 1%) who are considered finalists and eligible to receive scholarships. Approximately half of the finalists will be selected for merit scholarships. "Typically a high school would count themselves blessed to have one or two students reach the finalist level, but we recognize four of our high school family members who have achieved this high accomplishment," said Sean Osborne, principal, North Royalton High School. "These young men have earned the designation of Finalist in the competition for National Merit Scholarships.

Congratulations Owen Benefiel, Brian Chu, Brian Kozik and Ryan Chester.
