FZN has 2 National Merit Semifinalists & 4 Commended Scholars

Just as last week we learned that North High had two National Merit Semifinalists, I am proud to announce that we had four more FZN students were selected as National Merit Commended Scholars. It’s important to note that only about 34,000 students in the nation are being recognized in this manner for their exceptional academic promise. This places these students in the top 2-3% of the more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2018 PSAT. A total of six students being recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation bests our previous school record of four set by the Classes of 2017 and 2019 for the most that we have had at North High.

Congratulations go out to North High Seniors William Ohms and Anna Wyman, who have been named as 2020 National Merit Finalists.  Wil and Anna join a very elite group (less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors and two of only 8 students in the Fort Zumwalt School District) who received this tremendous recognition as a result of their exemplary performance on last year’s PSAT.   Wil and Anna now move on to compete for one of the 7,500 scholarships that are offered to the Semifinalists in this prestigious competition and we wish them the very best.
