Aaron Bialer, Daniel Bidikov, Justin Calamari, Laura Eule, Lylia Li, Harry Paul, Noah White and Julia Zeh from Paul D. Schreiber High School in the Port Washington School District have been recognized as finalists in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Finalists in the competition are eligible for college, corporate and state scholarships. According to the National Merit Scholarship Program, the 15,000 finalists were selected from a group of 16,000 semifinalists.
Semifinalists represented the top one-third of 50,000 high scorers who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Students are ranked with a selection index score based on their combined scores in math, critical reading and writing.
“This is a prestigious honor that highlights how our students continue to distinguish themselves as high-achieving scholars,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Mooney. “This is a remarkable recognition, and I congratulate these students on this fine accomplishment.”
