TWO 2020 National Merit Scholarship Competition Finalists! #KMPROUD

Congratulations to the following students for being named National Merit Finalists for the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Competition.

  • Jocelyn Heckenkamp
  • Rebecca Healy

More than 1.5 million juniors nationwide entered the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/MNSQT) in the fall of their junior year.  The 16,000 semifinalists represented less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and included the highest-scoring entrants in each state. To become a finalist and to be considered for a National Merit scholarship, each student was required to present an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed by their high school, and earn college entrance test scores that confirmed the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying SAT.

Winners of Merit Scholarship awards are chosen from the Finalist group based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments. Scholarships will be awarded to approximately 7,500 finalists beginning in March 2020.

Good luck Jocelyn and Rebecca!
