Three Longwood Seniors Named National Merit SemifinalistsLongwood Central School District is pleased to announce that three Longwood High School seniors have been named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. 

Connor Doyle, Robert Lennon, and Gavin Stumpf are among 16,000 students nationwide who earned the distinction based on their performance on last fall’s PSAT.  Less than 1% of high school graduating seniors in the United States qualify as a semifinalist.

“We are so proud of these students for their outstanding academic achievements,” said High School Principal Scott Schuster.  “Their hard work and dedication in the classroom have paid off, and we wish Connor, Robert, and Gavin continued success in the future.”

To be named a semifinalist, students must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, and write an essay. The semifinalists have qualified to compete for approximately 7,600 National Merit scholarships worth more than $30 million. Semifinalists will be notified in February if they have advanced to Finalist standing. Then, beginning in March and continuing to mid-June, around 7,600 students will be notified that they have been selected to receive a National Merit Scholarship award.
