Field Named National Merit Scholarship Finalist

Congratulations to CCHS senior Sean Field on being named a  National Merit Scholarship Finalist.  In the fall we learned that Sean was one of 16000 semi-finalists nationwide.  About 90% of those go on to finalist status, per NMSC information.  The next step will be about 8000 of those finalists being chosen for Merit Scholarship award.  However, with that aside, many prestigious institutions offer full scholarships to students who qualify as National Merit Scholars.  Being selected into this group means great opportunities for Sean are ahead.  We can’t wait to see where this distinction takes him!
