Three Seniors Named Finalists in National Merit Scholarship ProgramThree Longwood High School seniors have advanced to the 2021 National Merit Scholarship program's finals.

Connor Doyle, Robert Lennon, and Gavin Stumpf are among the top 15,000 high school students nationwide who were awarded the distinction by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).  The program honors students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

"We are exceedingly proud of Connor, Robert, and Gavin," said Principal Scott Schuster. "Achieving finalist standing is an incredible accomplishment and a testament to their academic capabilities and unlimited potential."

The seniors entered the academic competition as juniors along with more than 1.5 million students by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of entrants.

After each submitted a detailed scholarship application, the students advanced to the finals, demonstrated an outstanding academic record and leadership abilities, wrote an essay, and were endorsed by a high school official. In March and continuing to mid-June, NMSC notifies approximately 7,600 finalists that they have been selected to receive a Merit Scholarship, corporate or college-sponsored monetary award.
