Five Cannon School students named National Merit Scholar semifinalists

Five Cannon School students were named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship program. Semifinalists include Makenzie O’Brien, Sarasota Serulneck, Taylor Stevanovski, Miriam Wahid and Ayesha Syed.

About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.

Cannon School is a private independent junior kindergarten through 12th grade college-preparatory institution. It enrolls over 1,000 students from Concord, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Mooresville, Charlotte, the University City area, Kannapolis and Salisbury.
