Five from Shorecrest Preparatory are named Merit semifinalists

Five students from Shorecrest Preparatory School have been named National Merit semifinalists. They are Kathryn Kass, Stephen Mandula, Joseph Martinez, Gabriel Neustadt and Max Rabinovich. Merit semifinalists are eligible to compete for more than 8,000 National Merit scholarships worth $35-million that will be offered in the spring. More than 1.5-million high school juniors in more than 21,000 schools took the 2007 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, an initial screen of program entrants. Of those, about 16,000 were named semifinalists. To become a finalist, semifinalists must submit a scholarship application, have an outstanding academic record, be endorsed and recommended by their principal, earn SAT scores that confirm the qualifying test performance, and write an essay describing activities, interests and goals.
