Grapevine Faith Christian School is honored to announce two National Merit Semifinalists and four National Merit Letters of Commendation recipients.
In September, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the names of these scholastic champions. Recognized for their academic excellence, these students were selected from about 1.4 million candidates in more than 22,000 high schools, ranking them in the top 1% of all high school students nationwide. Our semifinalists join a group of approximately 16,000 striving to reach the Finalist level.
This is the 60th year of the National Merit Scholarship Program, which funds some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth approximately 33 million dollars. “These students represent a valuable national resource,” stated the NMSP spokesperson, “recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.”
Please join us in celebrating these outstanding students.
