Students from King were announced as semifinalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program including Ethan Marsh '18, from Darien, CT.
The semifinalists were chosen based on their scores in last fall's Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, taken by about 1.6 million high school juniors. They represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. These seniors, most of whom will advance to finalist status, must submit a scholarship application that includes an outstanding academic record, a recommendation from their schools, an essay, and SAT scores than confirm the results of the PSAT.
Ethan comments, "It is an honor to be one of the three National Merit Semifinalists at King, and to be in the company of such esteemed scholars." Read more about our National Scholars.
Cam Raker '19: "I give back by... Spending one period a day tutoring at my school's Math Help Center. I try to help other students understand the "why" of the problem, not just how to do it. We boil down the concepts so we can piece the problem together. I also love volunteering at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk. I'm interested in biology and enjoy operating the Touch Tank because the kids get so excited seeing the animals." Read Cam's full Q&A here,
