Eight Wesleyan seniors recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation

The college advising office is pleased to announce that the National Merit Scholarship Corporation has recognized eight Wesleyan seniors.  
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an annual academic competition which recognizes exceptional academic promise demonstrated by a student’s outstanding performance on their junior year PSAT. 

Seniors Josh Kavel and Dina Samson 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 seniors will submit essays in the hopes of becoming finalists to earn scholarship money from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Finalists will be announced in February. 

Additionally, seniors Alex Ebert, Kallaghan Freeman, Daniel Lim, Papa Ohemeng-Mensah, Junie Shin, and Tengle Wang were named National Merit Commended students. Approximately 2 percent of seniors nationwide receive this recognition. 

Congratulations to these seniors and their families. For a full gallery of pictures of the students mentioned above, click here
