Twenty-eight (28) Shelby County
Schools seniors have been named 2014 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists
by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). These students were selected based on their performance on
the Preliminary SAT. These academically
talented young men and women will have an opportunity to compete for nearly
8,000 scholarships worth more than $35 million that will be awarded in the
spring of 2014.
Each year, nearly 16,000 high
school seniors across the nation are selected as scholarship Semifinalists by
the NMSC. The nationwide pool of
Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, and
includes the highest-scoring PSAT students from each state.
To become Finalists, students
and their high schools will now submit a detailed scholarship application which
includes their academic record, participation in school and community
activities, demonstrated leadership abilities and honors or awards received.
The 2014 National Merit
Scholarship Semifinalists from Shelby County Schools are as follows:
Arlington High School
Bolton High School
Collierville High School
Germantown High School
Houston High School
