Lakehill Preparatory School is proud to announce that senior Rachel Drazner has been awarded the distinguished honor of National Merit Semifinalist for the Class of 2015.
About 1.4 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2015 National Merit Program by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT).
The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, which represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to advance in the competition for National Merit Scholarships, with a combined worth of more than $33 million, that will be offered next spring.
"As a National Merit Semifinalist, Rachel represents some of the most academically talented in the country," said Headmaster Roger Perry. "We join our teachers and her proud parents in congratulating her for this highly esteemed academic honor."
