WHS Celebrates 5 National Merit Semifinalists!

Great news! Seniors Isabella Bueno, Ethan Kam, Benjamin Sehmel, Elliot Smith, and Aria Yang have received recognition as National Merit Semifinalists in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program and will now be considered for National Merit Finalist status!

These academically talented students have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarship worth more than $30 million that will be offered next spring!  The 2019 PSAT/NMSQT served as an initial screening of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state!

Congratulations to these five Falcons and their families on this distinguished honor!
