Jennifer Nolan named National Merit Scholarship Finalist
February 25, 2019
The College Advising Office is pleased to announce that Jennifer Nolan has been named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist, an honor that only 1% of high school seniors nationwide receive. Jennifer now moves to the final round of competition in the hopes of becoming a National Merit Scholar and earning scholarship money. National Merit Scholars are evaluated on a myriad of criteria including the finalist’s academic record, history of activities and leadership, school rigor, test scores, written recommendations, and an essay response.
In addition to strong academics, Jennifer is a four-year member of Wesleyan’s state-champion softball team, the varsity track team, and Mock Trial. She is also a three-year member of Team Omicron and Wesleyan’s math team and serves as a peer leader for freshmen. In addition to her National Merit Finalist standing, the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce recently named Jennifer as Wesleyan’s STAR student for the 2018-2019 school year based on her single-sitting SAT score and GPA, and she is currently a finalist for the Stamps President’s Scholarship Program at Georgia Institute of Technology.
Congratulations to Jennifer on being named a National Merit Finalist and good luck to her as she pursues this final honor.
