Three of our own JGHS seniors were recently recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program! Each year, 1.6 million students throughout the country are entered into this academic scholarship competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test.

Elizabeth Choi, a student dedicated to both academics and the arts, was named a Semifinalist, placing her at the top 1% of test-takers nationwide. She is now in the running for one of the final 15,000 scholarships.

Seniors Yeji Lee and Jaida Morgan, while not continuing in the scholarship competition, were named Commended Students in the program. This recognition places them among the top 34,000 high-scorers nationwide, and is a demonstration of their strong potential for academic success.

Congratulations, students!
