National Merit Scholars Recognized

Seven National Merit Semifinalists, six National Merit Commended Students, and two National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars in the Class of 2019 were recognized during an all-school assembly on Monday, October 8.

Over 1.6 million students took the 2017 PSAT last October and entered the National Merit Scholarship Program, a nationwide competition for recognition and awards conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

The top 2.5% of Hispanic and Latino PSAT/NMSQT test takers were invited to apply for the National Hispanic Recognition Program.

Two of our students applied and were selected. Harpeth Hall is pleased to recognize the following National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars in the Class of 2019:

About 34,000 students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Commended Students are named on the basis of a nationally applied Selection Index score that may vary from year to year and is typically below the level required for participants to be named Semifinalists in their respective states.
