These 2018 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists are among the top scorers on a test taken by more than 1 million high school juniors at more than 22,000 high schools across the nation. The semifinalists represent less than 1 percent of high school students who qualify to continue in the competition. Next spring, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation will award about $35 million to roughly 8,000 graduating high school seniors.

Congratulations also to Fort Zumwalt’s 2018 National Merit Scholarship Commended Scholars, who scored among the top five percent in the nation. 

East High’s Caitlyn Elias; North High’s Emily Burns and Brendan Hoffmann; South High’s Emma Hixon and Akshat Nadella; and West High’s Ryan Orf and Malvika Pandya
