Hunter Hicks congratulated by school administrators on being named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) has announced those seniors who qualified as a Semifinalist in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program, which is in its 67th year. 

Meridian High School senior Hunter Hicks is one of approximately 16,000 high school seniors announced today across the nation as Semifinalists. High school juniors entered the program by taking the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), an initial screen of program entrants. 

The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. Hunter will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships to be offered next spring. 

The administration team, faculty, and staff wish Hunter success in the competition from Meridian High School this school year. Congratulations Hunter!
