Congratulations to our 2019 National Merit Scholar Semi-Finalist, Sam S.!

Based on his scores from the Preliminary SAT, Allen Academy Senior Sam S., has been chosen as a Semi-Finalist in the 64th annual National Merit Scholarship competition, placing him among the top young scholars in the state and nation.

Officials at the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semi-Finalists this week. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring. Over 90 percent of the Semi-Finalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.

Congratulations, Sam! We are so proud of you and all of your hard work!
