Four students from Notre Dame Academy have been named National Merit Semifinalists. NDA seniors, Andrea Davis, Carly Gross, Kelsey Sucher and Lily Thaman, were among the 16,000 Semifinalists named in the 61st annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors now have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,400 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring. To become finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program these young women must now submit scholarship applications that include information about their academic records, co-curricular activities, leadership abilities, honors, awards and employment.
“We are extremely proud of these NDA scholars and their selection as National Merit Semifinalists,” said Mr. Jack VonHandorf, Principal of Notre Dame Academy. “They are to be commended for their commitment to academic excellence and diligence in the classroom. We congratulate these young women and their families as we celebrate this honor.”
