Seven Manhasset High School seniors were recently recognized as semifinalists in the 69th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Daniella Dell’Aquila, Edward Huang, Christian Kim, Julia Moosikasuwan, Jack Voelker, Katherine Wede and Marcus Wu, are among more than 16,000 semifinalists out of 1.3 million high schoolers to earn the title due to their 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Scholarship Qualifying Test scores.

Semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. These students are now in the running to compete in the program for about 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered in the spring of 2024. More than 15,000 semifinalists are expected to advance to the finalist round, with approximately half of the finalists winning a National Merit Scholarship. The students will find out in February if they have earned the finalist title once they fulfill the proper requirements.

The Manhasset Public Schools congratulates each student on this outstanding achievement and wishes them the best of luck as they continue in the competition.
