Seven Guilderland High School seniors named 2016 National Merit Scholarship Finalists

National Merit FinalistsFebruary 18, 2016—Seven Guilderland High School seniors learned on Feb. 10 that they have been named finalists in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Competition.

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

Guilderland High School seniors, Jeremy Collison, William Dong, Sarah Jones, Joseph Petitti, Catherine Seita, William Wang and Michael Zhu met the rigorous requirements for finalist standing, placing them in a group representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.

The selection of some 7,400 Merit Scholarship winners from a group of more than 15,000 finalists is now in progress. Winners will be contacted beginning in March.
