Students named National Merit finalists
Parker School seniors Paul Gregg and Aidan Wharton have advanced as finalists for a National Merit Scholarship Award.
In September, Gregg and Wharton were notified that each was one of about 16,000 national semifinalists out of the 50,000 highest scorers of approximately 1.5 million high school students who took the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test last year. Now they have advanced to a group of about 15,000 finalists.
Gregg and Wharton will find out in March if they are among approximately 8,300 National Merit Scholarship Award winners. The awards range from a $2,500 lump sum scholarship, to corporate-sponsored and college-sponsored scholarships.
Last year, Parker’s Kieran Najita was a Merit Scholarship Award winner. In the last three years, Parker has had six of the 10 total Big Island finalists.
