Congratulations are in order for Hathaway Brown seniors Stephanie Kaiser, Alison Xin, and Yasmine Zein, who have been chosen as National Merit Semifinalists for their high scores on the preliminary SAT. Only one percent of high school seniors across the country are part of this prestigious list. The approximately 16,000 Semifinalists for 2019 may advance as Finalists and compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $32 million, that will be offered next spring. Roughly 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and half of those will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
