The National Merit Scholarship Competition
The National Merit Scholarship Competition and its related awards are among the most prestigious academic honors that high school seniors may receive. Our heartfelt congratulations go to the Loyola students who recently have been notified of honors by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their performances in the PSAT Examination in the fall of 2009.
Loyola is honored to have eleven seniors who were named semifinalists. These scholars join the ranks of approximately 16,000 seniors throughout the United States who performed in the top one-half percent of those who took the PSAT in 2009. These gentlemen are now in competition to become finalists and to be awarded scholarships. So, keep your fingers crossed for their continued success.
