Sean McConnachie ’20 has been named a National Merit Semifinalist by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). NMSC has announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
