Kerr High School students Priya Sinha and Jason Ta were named National Merit Semifinalists.

Congratulations to Priya Sinha and Jason Ta for having been named National Merit Semifinalists!  We are proud to have students of your caliber at Kerr High School.

Over 1.5 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), 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. The number of semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.
