Three East Greenwich High School students have advanced to the finalist round in the 2014 competition for National Merit scholarships: Andrew Miner, Connor Ross, and Heather Shen.
“On behalf of the entire East Greenwich High School community, I would like to congratulate these students for receiving ‘Finalist’ status,” wrote Principal Michael Podraza in his EGHS Success blog. “This designation is a testament to the hard work and dedication to learning that they show everyday, both inside and outside of the classroom.”
Four EGHS students received “commended” by National Merit and four were named semi-finalists (of which 3 are now finalists). The National Merit program named a total of 16,000 semi-finalists last September. Finalists will be considered for scholarships later this year.
