NDA Students Named 2016 National Merit Finalists

Notre Dame Academy is pleased to announce that four students from the class of 2016 have been recognized as National Merit Finalists by the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program. NDA seniors Andrea Leigh Davis, Carly Gross, Kelsey Sucher, Lily Thaman have all earned the distinction of National Merit Finalist. 

These students were among the 16,000 semifinalists named in the National Merit Scholarship Program’s 61st competition in September recognizing each state’s top students. A total of 1.5 million high school juniors entered the program by taking the 2014 PSAT test. To become finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program, these young women submitted scholarship applications that included information about their academic records, co-curricular activities, leadership abilities, honors, awards and employment. 

“We are very proud of these NDA scholars as it is quite an honor to be recognized as a National Merit Finalist,” said Mr. Jack VonHandorf, Principal of Notre Dame Academy. “This accomplishment is a reflection of the diligence of our students and dedication of our faculty. We congratulate all four of these young women and their families.”
