George Mason senior, Niharika Singhvi, is among the 2,500 recipients of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation's $2,500 scholarships. 

Singhvi, who plans to study public policy (perhaps at the University of Virginia), is currently the Student Representative on the Falls Church School Board. Congratulations, Niharika!

The National Merit $2,500 Scholarship winners are the finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. The number of winners named in each state is proportional to the state's percentage of the nation's graduating high school seniors. Virginia had 68 recipients in this round of scholarships.
