Senior Eirini Drosos was recently named a semifinalist in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship program. 

Eirini is one of 16,000 semifinalists that have been chosen to compete for a finalist spot. From there, 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million will be awarded. Students around the nation qualified by taking last year’s PSAT/NMSQT test.

An active member of the high school community, Eirini is a member of the pep band, swim team, ethics team and the philosophy club. Additionally, she is the treasurer of the senior class. Outside of school she volunteers at a local animal shelter.

In addition to Eirini being named a semifinalist, five students were named Commended Students in the program. The district congratulates Rahul Busri, Michael D’Avanzo, Doreen Dong, Matthew Fantry and Jessica Kneller for their recognitions.

National Merit Finalists will be named later this year, and winners of scholarships will comprise about half of the finalists.
