LAMP semifinalists

As nine sets of proud parents and family members watched, Loveless Academic Magnet Program honored its nine students who were named National Merit Semifinalists.

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships for high school students. The students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/NationalMerit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Around 1.6 million students take that test each year. Only 16,000 students are named semifinalists.

LAMP saluted its honorees with a ceremony in the school library. During his speech, Principal Matthew Monson pointed out that only four schools in the state had more National Merit Semifinalists and that each of those schools have a much larger student enrollment than LAMP.

LAMP’s semifinalists are Minwook Choi, Arnob Guha, Sanjeev P Gurshaney, Haeun Lee, Quinn Y Lee, Yanzhe Liu, William M Nutt, Jung Vin Seo, and Dain Yi.
