Four Seniors Honored as National Merit Semifinalists

We are proud to announce that GDS seniors Claire McDowell, Annika Rogers, Cole Talbot, and Payton Wagner have been named as National Merit Semifinalists. This honor, based on outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMQT, recognizes the highest scoring entrants in each state and is earned by less than one percent of high school seniors in the U.S. Semifinalists have the opportunity to pursue one of the 7,250 National Merit Scholarships collectively worth nearly $28 million.
