WHS Senior Recognized as a National Merit Finalist

Williamston High School Senior Jenna has been named a 2020 National Merit Finalist. 

Every October, about 1.6 million juniors across the country take the SAT. Those who score in the top 1% achieve the distinction of National Merit Semifinalist.

To become finalists, semifinalists must maintain outstanding academic records throughout high school, receive the endorsement of their high school principal, and submit SAT scores confirming their prior performance on the initial qualifying test. SAT scores are typically within the top one percent of all SAT results in their state. All National Merit Scholarship winners will be chosen from the finalist group. Scholarship awards will be announced starting in March of 2020.

Congratulations Jenna!
