National Merit Scholars

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!
