The National Merit Scholarship Corporation has advanced two Wheatley seniors as Finalists in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. The seniors earning this prestigious honor are:
- Jakob Gilbert
- Michelle Lin
As Finalists, the students have scored in the top one half of one percent of the more than 1.5 million juniors who entered the program by taking the PSAT last year.
By advancing to Finalist status, these students remain eligible for Merit Scholarship awards worth $34 million that will be offered this spring.
We congratulate the work of our Finalists!
