Lakehill Preparatory School is proud to announce the National Merit Semifinalists for the Class of 2013. Two seniors, Clayton Drazner and Jacob Graff, have been awarded this distinguished honor.
More than 1.5 million juniors in nearly 22,000 high schools entered the 2013 National Merit Program by taking the 2011 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 $32 million, that will be offered next spring.
"These students represent some of the most academically talented in the country," said Headmaster Roger Perry. "We join our teachers and their proud parents in congratulating them for this highly esteemed academic honor."
