Thirty students from the class of 2022 representing 11 archdiocesan high schools throughout the five-county region recently learned that they are National Merit Recognized Students.
The students, who will be seniors when the new academic year begins in the fall, were recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program as among the 50,000 highest scoring individuals among approximately 1.5 million high school students to enter the competition nationwide.
The listing of individuals below includes those identified by an asterisk as participating in the Connelly Foundation’s Neumann Scholars Program. Since 1995 the scholarship program has identified academically talented eighth grade students through a competitive examination and provides four year scholarships to attend any archdiocesan high school.
