Junior Named National Merit Semifinalist
Locust Valley High School congratulates senior Adit Dutta for being named a semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program sponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Adit is recognized for achieving an exceptional score on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) as a junior when he took the exam along with 1.6 million students across the nation. Of those high school students, only approximately 16,000 were named semifinalists.
Adit will now compete for a spot as a finalist by providing proof of his high academic achievements throughout high school and by earning a score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) that is consistent with his performance on the PSAT. In February 2019, the National Merit Corporation will name the finalists who will go on to compete for the actual scholarships.
An IB Diploma candidate, Adit is also a member of the wrestling team and the AIDS Awareness Club. He plays the piano and has a talent for drawing, which he practices in his IB Art course. Adit is considering majoring in Biology and preparing for a possible career in dentistry.
Congratulations to Adit on this elite accomplishment!
