PRESS RELEASE BY SUMNER COUNTY SCHOOLS
Gallatin, TN—Sumner County Schools (SCS) is excited to announce the names of our National Merit Finalists. Less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors qualified for this prestigious honor, and they have an opportunity to continue in the competition for more than 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million.
SCS congratulates the following National Merit Finalists:
Hendersonville High School
Merrol Hyde Magnet School
Station Camp High School
White House High School
More than 1.5 million students entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT, NMSQT), which serves as an initial screen of program entrants.
To become a finalist, these students and a high school official submitted a detailed scholarship application, in which they provided information about their academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.
“Our students have earned a prestigious honor for themselves and their schools,” said Dr. Del Phillips, Director of Sumner County Schools. “This recognition is a culmination of their hard work and dedication. They are excellent ambassadors for Sumner County, and we are excited to see what they accomplish in the future.”
