Six members of the Gilman Class of 2018 have been named National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists: Nick Auen, Bryan Huang, Bowen Jiang, Michael Johnson, Hari Menon, and Matthew Mu. The six semifinalists will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships that will be offered next spring.
Additionally, the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program named 12 Gilman seniors as Commended Students, recognizing their "outstanding potential for academic success." They are among the top 50,000 of the 1.6 million students who entered the program when taking the PSAT in the fall of their junior year. Commended Students include: Barrett Crawford, David Gushue, Mekhi Johnson, Anh Le, Jack Mills, Jules Ouwerkerk, Aayush Pokharel, Sami Raza, Alexander Seibel, Max Stern, Kevin Zhang, and Zachary Zhao.
Students enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
Congratulations to all!
