For the second year in a row, eight seniors from Lake Forest High School were named Semifinalists for college scholarships awarded by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation: Kevin P. Forman, Ashwin Krishnaswamy, Chloe E. Lee, Siddhartha M. Ojha, Megan E. Parsons, Devin T. Radzely, Andrew J. Terkildsen, and Maxwell O. Yates. These students are among 16,000 Semifinalists announced today by officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®) in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. We are so proud of these Lake Forest Scouts for their achievement!
To become a Finalist, the Semiﬁnalist and a high school oﬃcial must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the Semiﬁnalist's academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A Semiﬁnalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school oﬃcial, write an essay, and earn SAT® or ACT® scores that conﬁrm the student's earlier performance on the qualifying test.
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring.
