HARRISON, N.Y. -- Three Harrison High School students have earned honors in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship program.
Harrison High School senior Catherine Rocchi was named a 2015 semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship program. She is among 16,000 semifinalists nationwide to be selected as the highest scoring entrants in each state and will be notified in February/March if she is a finalist and possibly Merit Scholarship winner.
Harrison High School students Matthew Rube and Olivia Barbulescu were named as National Merit Commended Students.
In October 2013, over 1.5 million U.S. high school students, who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) and met other program participation requirements, entered the 2015 competition for National Merit Scholarship Program recognition and scholarships. NSMC uses PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index scores – the sum of critical reading, mathematics, and writing skills scores- to determine 50,000 high scoring participants who qualify for program recognition.
Nearly two-thirds of those high scorers received National Merit Scholar Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.
