MB Student Named 2021 National Merit Scholar
Congratulations to senior Vibha K. for being selected as a 2021 National Merit Scholarship winner! Vibha was selected from 16,000 outstanding finalists and will receive a scholarship. The nationwide pool of finalists represents less than one percent of all U.S. high school seniors.
The journey to National Merit Scholar starts when over 1.5 million juniors across the U.S. take the PSAT/NMSQT. The highest scoring participants from each state, totaling about 17,000, are then named semi-finalists. From that semi-finalist group, about 16,000 students move forward as finalists. After much careful review, only about 7,500 students from the initial 1.5 million earn the National Merit Scholar distinction. Way to go, Vibha!
