Eighteen Shipley Students Recognized by National Merit Scholarship Program
Eighteen Shipley students have been recognized for their achievements as National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Scholars. This recognition is based on their performance on the PSAT/NMSQT tests. One senior was recognized as a National Achievement Scholar.
Five seniors have been recognized as Semifinalists. This ranks them among the top one percent of students in the nation. These students entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) as juniors. They will go on to compete as finalists and perhaps become eligible for scholarships through the National Merit Corporation or its sponsoring organizations. Twelve of Shipley’s seniors have been recognized for their achievements as National Merit Commended Scholars. One student was recognized by the National Achievement Scholar Program, which provides recognition for outstanding Black American high school students as determined by scores on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
