Senior Kristy Jahchan has been named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist based on her exceptional performance on the Preliminary SAT. The College Board bestows this honor upon less than one percent of high school seniors nationwide each year.

Kristy was named a semifinalist in the competition earlier this school year. However, advancing to finalist standing is an even greater achievement. She is among an elite group of only 15,000 finalists nationwide. As required of all finalists, Kristy earned scores on the SAT that are consistent with her success on the Preliminary SAT.

The College Board shares the names of students who earn these distinctions with colleges and universities. As a finalist, Kristy is now eligible to receive scholarships of $10,000 toward her college education. These scholarships can come from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, corporate sponsors, or the universities the finalists attend. 

Congratulations to Kristy on this elite accomplishment!
