National Merit Scholar Semifinalist

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in their annual National Merit Scholarship Program. This nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. Our own Kate Cheng was among that number. She will now fulfill several requirements in an attempt to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.


Congratulations! We love you and are super proud of you!
