MB Student Named 2022 National Merit Scholar
Congratulations to senior Eli W. for being selected as a 2022 National Merit Scholarship winner! Eli was chosen from 15,000 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 16,000, are then named semi-finalists. From that semi-finalist group, about 15,000 students move forward as finalists (including Moses Brown seniors Kevin L., Casey L., and Nathan X.). After much careful review, only about 7,500 students from the initial 1.5 million earn the National Merit Scholar distinction. Way to go, Eli!
