Two CYHSB students were recognized by the National Merit Program for their exceptional PSAT scores. Avi Katz, from South Bend, Indiana, was one of 34,000 students nationwide, out of a pool over 1.5 million, who received the National Merit Program's Letter of Commendation. Andrew Tavin, a local Memphian, was one of only 16,000 students - less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors - who qualified as a National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalist. The Semi-Finalists will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,200 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $35 million, that will be offered next spring.
We congratulate them both and wish Andrew the best of luck in the next round!
