National Merit Semifinalist At Klamath Union High School!
Klamath Union High School has a National Merit Semifinalist who scored a perfect score on her PSAT, Audrey Lindgren!
Audrey is one of 16,000 Semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program which included 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools.
The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
Audrey will be competing for over 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million dollars that will be offered next spring. We are excited and proud of Audrey!
National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) was established in 1955 — a time in which there was concern that the United States was lagging behind in the cold war scientific race, but the public was indifferent to rewarding intellectual accomplishment. In response, the National Merit Scholarship Program was founded to identify and honor scholastically talented American youth and to encourage them to develop their abilities to the fullest. Through this nationwide competition, National Merit Scholarships are awarded to program Finalists and Special Scholarships are awarded to other high performing participants who meet a corporate sponsor's eligibility criteria.
