Four Marauders are National Merit Finalists 
A distinction that places them among the top 1% of seniors nationwide


Congratulations to seniors Charles Diaz, James Irwin, Robert Lee, and Matthew Mellas on advancing to Finalist standing in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Our Marauders are among an elite group of about 15,000 students nationwide – less than 1% of the nation’s graduating seniors.

This “finalist” designation puts the students in the running to receive National Merit Scholarship awards to be offered in 2022. The National Merit Scholarship Program began in 1955 and is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. Approximately 1.5 million high school students enter the program each year.
