Recently seven Lyons Township High School seniors received word that they were named National Merit Finalists. These same seven students must now wait to hear if they were chosen for a Merit Scholarship.
Finalists achieve this honor by scoring in the top one-half of one percent among students taking the PSAT, a preliminary college entrance exam. More than 1.5 million students entered the competition nationwide. LT students are among 15,000 Finalists who will vie for one of some 8,200 Merit Scholarships.
Congratulations to the following Finalists:
Rachel Adducci LaGrange Park
Sarah Glowiak Western Springs
Alaina Kafkes Western Springs
Rebecca Rymsza LaGrange
Hanna Saggau LaGrange
Stephen Sullivan Western Springs
