National Merit Scholarship Corporation honors eight Wesleyan students and names three semifinalists

The College Advising Office is pleased to announce that the National Merit Scholarship Corporation has recognized eight Wesleyan seniors. Zachary Gan, Kaleb John, and Jackson Murphy were named National Merit Semifinalists, an honor that only 1 percent of seniors (approximately 16,000 total) nationwide receive based on their PSAT scores. These three seniors will now submit essays in the hopes of becoming finalists and earning scholarship money. The finalists will be announced in February 2023. 
In addition, five Wesleyan students have been named National Merit Commended Students. Approximately 2 percent of seniors nationwide receive this recognition. Commended Students are Miles Cleveland, Hannah Fears, Steven Guyer, Brendan O’Shields, and Ann Venkatesan.   

Congratulations to these students and their families! For a full gallery of pictures of students honored, please visit the gallery here.
