Students named National Merit Semifinalists
Stillwater Area High School seniors Jocelyn A. McBride and Eva L. Stafne have been named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program. They are among just 16,000 students from across the country to receive the honor.
Semifinalists must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay and earn either an SAT or ACT score that confirms their earlier performance on the qualifying test.
The two will go on to compete for 7,250 scholarships worth nearly $28 million dollars next spring.
