OHS Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists, commended students

Ten members of the Class of 2019 were named National Merit Semifinalists
The eight OHS students who were named Commended Scholars for 2019


Ten members of the Oakwood High School Class of 2019 have been named National Merit Semifinalists, the highest number in more than 15 years.  To achieve this honor, students had to be among the highest scoring in the state on the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

The OHS semifinalists are:  William Ayres, Gabrielle Echevarria, Rebecca Gentry, Mia Gorman, William Janning, Jack Lynch, Charles Ross, Peter Salisbury, Taylor Shineman and Philippa Zhang.

The nationwide pool of semifinalists represents less than one percent of the 1.6 million high school students who took the PSAT.  To become a finalist, students will be judged on their academic record, participation in community and school activities, leadership abilities, employment history and awards received. 

Eight OHS students were also named Commended Students in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship program. 

The OHS Commended Students are:  Claire Aguiar, Charlie Almoney, Rachel Dalrymple, Elijah Davis-Gallentine, Sophie Hagan, Luke Miller Gabby Schalm and Lainey Teeters.

These students scored in the top 3 percent on the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

National Merit Scholarship winners for 2019 will be announced starting in April.
