Congratulations to Nicholas Yungbluth and Elena McCleary for being selected as a National Merit Finalists. Students selected for this recognition are judged on participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. Students must also have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the PSAT. This is a very prestigious award and both students should be commended. Congratulations Nicholas and Elena!
