Congratulations to Taylor County High School senior Andrew Melton!
Andrew has been named a Semifinalist in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program!
High school juniors across the United States entered the academic competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
The highest-scoring students in each state represent the pool of semifinalists who, according to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, represent less than 1% of United States high school seniors.
The next step for a semifinalist to become a finalist is to complete the required application that includes their SAT or ACT scores, an essay and a letter of recommendation by a high school official.
