The National Merit Scholarship Program has named 31 members of the Class of 2019 as Semifinalists and 28 as Commended Scholars based on each student’s 2017 PSAT/NMSQT scores. This year, of the more than 1.6 million student entrants nationwide, only 16,000 were selected as semifinalists, of which only 1,406 were from Texas.
“Our boys continue to impress as wonderful examples of Marksmen, promoting our vital qualities of dedication, integrity, and character,” said Veronica Pulido-Guzman, Al G. Hill ’63 Director of College Counseling. “These seniors are outstanding students and, more important, outstanding men.”
