Two Seniors are Finalists in National Merit Scholarship Program
Maumee Valley students continue to excel in the national arena. Two seniors, Julia Xiong and Evan Heritage, received notification that they are Finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program. National Merit recognizes outstanding student performance on the PSAT/NMSQT® test taken during the junior year. Of the 1.6 million entrants who take the PSAT/NMSQT® test, National Merit selects 15,000 students for Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship. We wish Julia and Evan well as they enter the final stage of the National Merit Scholarship selection process.
