Katelyn Blouch '21 Named National Merit Semifinalist
We are thrilled to announce that Katelyn Blouch '21 has been named a Semifinalist in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) Program.
With this honor, she now has the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit® Scholarships worth nearly $32 million that will be offered next spring.
Katelyn competed with 1.5 million students from 22,000 high schools nationwide who took the PSAT/NMSQT®, the initial screen for National Merit Semifinalists. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.
In making the announcement, Principal Jeff Sutliff congratulated Katelyn on her incredible milestone: "Although testing is only one part of the larger educational equation at Saint Joseph Academy, the PSAT/NMSQT is known for showcasing the best and brightest in our country. This recognition will help broaden Katelyn's educational opportunities and we are very proud of all she has accomplished." Click here to read more about her accomplishments. Congratulations, Katelyn!
