SCDS Celebrates Six National Merit Semifinalists

Country Day is thrilled to have six seniors selected as semifinalists in the annual National Merit Scholarship Competition. Congratulations to Aden Adjei, Ned Henneman, Avi Heyman, Sarah Jane Schultz, Eoin Wilson, and Fiona Wilson.  In addition, seniors Gracie Daters and Jordan Ruben were commended by the National Merit Scholarship program.

The six semi-finalists are among 16,000 semifinalists nationwide, which represents less than one percent of all U.S. high school seniors. The students have an opportunity to continue in the competition for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered in the spring of 2023. Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
