Seven Kirkwood High School Students Named as Finalists in National Merit Scholarship Program

The National Merit Scholarship Program has now determined which of the 16,000 Semifinalists named in September 2020 have met all requirements to advance to Finalist standing in the competition. All Finalists will be considered for National Merit Scholarships to be offered in 2021. The seven students are: Sabrina Baggstrom, Lillian Bartin, Jonathan Henry, Zoe Krug, Rayhana Niyogi, Jonathan Plants, and Daniel Tobias. A Certificate of Merit from the National Merit Scholarship Competition (NMSC) was mailed to each of the finalists. 

The selection of some 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners from the group of more than 15,000 Finalists is now in progress. In March, NMSC will begin notifying scholarship winners by email.
