The MSD of Lawrence Township is home to four National Merit Finalists in the Class of 2017. Congratulations to Alan Jiang (Lawrence Central), Emily Vollmer (Lawrence Central), Justin Powless (Lawrence Central), and Emma O’Leary (Lawrence North).
In February, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) notifies the semifinalists who are advancing to Finalist standing. There is still one more phase to get to the winners as NMSC evaluates the Finalists’ academic record, information about the school’s curricula and grading system, two sets of test scores, the high school official’s written recommendation, information about the student’s activities and leadership, and the Finalist’s own essay.
Congratulations and best wishes to the finalists in MSD of Lawrence Township.
