National Merit Scholarship Corporation Honors Nine Wesleyan Seniors and Names Three Semifinalists

The College Advising Office is pleased to announce that the National Merit Scholarship Corporation has recognized nine Wesleyan seniors. Meredith Mangum, Braden Thorne, and Andy Yang were named National Merit Semifinalists, an honor that only 1% of seniors (approximately 16,000 total) nationwide receive based on their PSAT scores. These students will now submit essays in the hopes of becoming finalists and earning scholarship money. Finalists will be announced in February 2020.
In addition, Wesleyan has six National Merit Commended Students. Approximately 2% of seniors nationwide receive this recognition. Our Commended Students are Isaiah Erb, Lindsey Mains, Adam Rogers, Jacob Walton, Abby Weatherly, and Holden Wilder.
Congratulations to these students and their families!
