Two Merit Scholarship finalists at Cannon School
CONCORD — Cannon School seniors Cassie Calvert of Concord and Connor Lippincott of the University City area have been named finalists in the 57th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. They now compete with about 15,000 students from throughout the U.S. for scholarships totaling more than $34 million.
The National Merit Scholarship Corp. is a nonprofit organization that has offered annual scholarships for high school seniors since 1955. Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments and potential for success in rigorous college studies.
Approximately 1.5 million juniors sat for the preliminary SAT in 2010, and those who scored highest in their state achieved semifinalist standing.
Less than 1 percent of high school seniors nationwide make up this group.
A smaller group must then meet requirements to advance to become finalists. The selection of approximately 8,400 Merit Scholarship winners from the group of 15,000 finalists is under way and winners will be notified in March.
