GHS student named semifinalist in National Merit
15, 2016 - Goshen High School senior Nina Pasquini has been named
a semifinalist in the 2017 National
Merit Scholarship Program.
The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing
less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest
scoring entrants in each state. The number of semifinalists in a state
is proportional to the state's percentage of the national total of
About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high
schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking
the 2015 Preliminary
SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
From the approximately 16,000 semifinalists, about
15,000 are expected to advance to the finalist level and will be
notified in February 2017 of this designation. To become a finalist,
Nina and Goshen High School must submit a detailed scholarship
application, which includes information about her academic record,
participation in high school and community activities, demonstrated
leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.
Congratulations, Nina, and best of luck!
