Congratulations to Derby High School students Katrina Mason and Malayna Unkel on being named National Merit Semifinalists!

Students become National Merit Semifinalists by taking the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test during their junior year and scoring in the top one-half of one percent in the state. Nationwide, about 16,000 students were named semifinalists. Students may then move to finalist status based on other requirements, such as academic skills, extracurricular accomplishments and an essay. Finalists will compete next spring for 2,500 National Merit Scholarships of $2,500. Scholarship winners will be announced in the spring.

“I am very proud of our students and staff for continuing our tradition of producing students among the nation’s best in the National Merit Scholarship program,” Tim Hamblin, Derby High School Principal, said.
