National Merit Semifinalists

    Ten students from five Anne Arundel County public high schools have been selected as semifinalists in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship competition.
    Five students from Severna Park High School led the list, while South River had two students, and Arundel, Broadneck, and Old Mill were represented by one student each. The prestigious list is comprised of about 16,000 student achievers nationwide.
    “I am so proud of these students who have shown the discipline, diligence, and excellence it takes to achieve great things,” Superintendent of Schools George Arlotto said. “They are clear examples of the talent that exists in all of our students.”
    Semifinalists in the competition, which is overseen by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, were selected from about 1.4 million juniors in nearly 22,000 U.S. high schools who were top scorers on the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
    The local semifinalists from South River High are  Cassandra Boyle and Caterina Wu
