KHS Announces National Merit Semifinalists

Kennett High School is proud to announce that seniors Benjamin A. Jordan and Sarah E. Ploener have been recognized as National Merit Semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. two students standing outside

Benjamin and Sarah were among approximately 1.6 million juniors who entered the 2018 National Merit Program by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) that served as an initial screen of program entrants.

In addition to being a member of the National Honor Society, Benjamin is a member of the Varsity Academic Team, Future Business Leaders of America, the Mock Trial Team, Model UN, and the German activity club. He also plays doubles for the varsity tennis team.

Sarah plays clarinet in the marching band and jazz band, and is a member of the string ensemble. She is also a member of the Varsity Academic Team, the Demon Robotics Team, Model UN, and the Gender Sexuality Alliance.

“We are tremendously proud of Sarah and Benjamin for their accomplishments,” said Kennett High School Principal Dr. Jeremy Hritz. “They are outstanding students who represent everything that is great about Kennett High School.”

The nationwide pool of semifinalists represents less than one percent of high school seniors and includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. The number of semifinalists in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

These students are eligible to continue in the program competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarship awards worth more than $33 million to be offered in the spring. To advance to the finalist level and to be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several additional requirements. These include an outstanding academic record, endorsement by the principal, and SAT scores that confirm the preliminary results. The semifinalist and his or her counselor must submit a detailed scholarship application that includes the student’s essay and information about the student’s participation and leadership in school and community activities.
