PVSchools is proud to announce that seven students have recently been named National Merit Finalists. They are:

  • Whitney Geren, Diana Garland and Andrew Cho - Horizon High School
  • Nicholas Chen and Lauren O'Donnell - North Canyon High School
  • Katherine Leung - Paradise Valley High School
  • Mackenzie Zepeda - Pinnacle High School

Beginning in March and continuing to mid-June, National Merit Scholarship Corporation will notify approximately 7,400 finalists that they have been selected to receive a Merit Scholarship award.

The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.
