Sixteen Trinity Prep seniors – Adede Appah-Sampong, John Baldwin, Matthew Castro, Daniel Contaldi, Olivia Demetriades, Will Driscoll, Setareh Gooshvar, Andrew Kwa, Dominic Martinez, Andrew Miller, Olivia Miller, Tej Stead, Alissa Vuillier, Jackie Wang, Robbie Witten, Jed Yang – have been named 2019 National Merit Finalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
The TPS seniors are among the 15,000 Finalists nationwide, and the selection of some 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners will come from this group.
More than 1.6 million students in the Class of 2019 began the current National Merit competition by taking the October 2017 PSAT/NMSQT, and 16,000 Semifinalists, the highest-scoring program participants, were named last fall. As Semifinalists, these seniors submitted additional information last fall and had to meet all requirements and deadlines to advance to Finalist standing in the competition.
National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced this spring, beginning in March and continuing through July.
