Karen, Madison, Trenton, Alia and Sharon Recognized as National Merit Finalists!

Earlier this school year, five Wheatley students were recognized as Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Corporation Scholarship Program. In February, we received news that these five students advanced as Finalists in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. The seniors earning this prestigious honor are:

  • Karen Li
  • Madison Ramos
  • Trenton Wong
  • Alia Yamin
  • Sharon Zhong

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!
