National Merit Finalists

The district is proud to announce two finalists in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Competition. Elwood-John H. Glenn High School students Kelsey Hackett and Bridget Leighton are among the top 15,000 students throughout the nation who are being acknowledged for their exceptional academic achievement.

These students placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2015 competition by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

All winners of Merit Scholarship awards are chosen from the finalist group based on their abilities, skills, accomplishments and additional educational information. Beginning in March and continuing to mid-June, the NMSC notifies approximately 7,600 finalists at their home addresses that they have been selected to receive a Merit Scholarship award.

Congratulations to both students for their outstanding achievement!
