Three Locust Valley High School seniors have been named National Merit Scholarship winners, receiving scholarships of $2,500 each. Nina Cialone, Michael DiSpirito and Michelle Hsu earned this incredible achievement.
The seniors are among 16,000 students chosen in the fall as semifinalists from 1.6 million high school juniors based on their 2019 PSAT scores. They were then among 15,000 high school students to advance to the finalist stage this spring after submitting detailed applications and an essay including information about their extracurricular activities, awards and leadership positions.
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation states that its sponsors join them to enhance the educational opportunities for America’s scholastically talented youth and to encourage the pursuit of excellence.
Congratulations to Nina, Michael and Michelle on this elite achievement!
