Brentwood senior Jack Wright found out in September that he is a Semifinalist for a National Merit® Scholarship.
Wright is one of about 16,000 students nationwide, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers who took the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
To ensure that academically talented students from all parts of the United States are included, Semifinalists are named on a state representational basis.
Wright must maintain high grades, among other considerations, to be considered as a Finalist in the program.
Brentwood senior, Noah Tatko was named a Commended Student in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program.
