The sky is the limit for the Canyons District high school students who are rocketing toward their scholastic goals. Twelve CSD students have been named as semi-finalists in the 2015-2016 National Merit Scholar competition. The semi-finalists from Canyons in this year’s scholarship competition are:

  • From Brighton: Pyper Atkins
  • From Corner Canyon: Mitchell Hilbig, Jacob Perry, Joshua Petersen
  • From Hillcrest:  Ian Buckley, Anthony Cheng, Emma R. Kratz, Emily R. Morgan, Nityam Rathi, Dale Schlacter, Caleb Shuler, Giselle Valentine

The high-achieving students represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. They were selected based on their scores on the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The list of finalists will be released in February. Winners of this year’s scholarships will be announced in spring.
