Jordan Schuman ’21 Named National Merit Semifinalist

Jordan Schuman ’21, a senior at St. John’s Jesuit High School and Academy, 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 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million that will be offered next spring. 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.
