Ten Canyons students have achieved semi-finalist status in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program. The students are:
Alta: Adam G. Fuller, Justen M. Gardner, Edward M. Nowakowski, Hillary L. Thalmann
Corner Canyon: Emily Workman
Hillcrest: Jordan Burns, AJ Kinney, Allison K. Schneggenburger, Thulasi R. Seshan, and Michelle C. Simmons.
The high-achieving students represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. They were selected based on their scores on the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
Some 15,000 of the 16,000 students who earned semifinalist status will advance to the finalist level. The list of finalists will be released in February. Winners of this year’s scholarships will be announced in spring 2014.
