David entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/NMSQT as an 11th grader. The nationwide pool of Semifinalist, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. Semifinalist will be competing for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be awarded next spring. National Merit Scholarship Corporation’s goal is to honor the nation’s scholastic champions and encourage the pursuit of academic excellence. Congratulations David!
