Thirty JP Schools Students Named National Merit Finalists
Thirty students in Jefferson Parish Schools have been named Finalists in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Nineteen students from Haynes Academy and 11 from Patrick F. Taylor Academy earned the honor.
In September, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Thirty-two JP Schools students were named Semifinalists. The Finalists are now eligible for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million offered in the spring.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic scholarship competition for high school students that began in 1955. To be deemed eligible, students must meet program entry and participation requirements, which include taking the preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in order to qualify for that year’s entry into the competition, and must be planning to accept admission to college no later than the fall after completing high school. This prominent scholarship aims to recognize and honor the academic achievements of students across the U.S. and its recipients should be proud.
