Central High Announces National Merit Semi-finalists

September 22, 2009

Principal Bill Waters announced that Seniors Chelsea Green and Kate Jones have been named National Merit Semi-Finalists in 55th annual competition of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than 1% of high school seniors across America and includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. Students qualify for the National Merit program by taking the PSAT as high school juniors. Both Chelsea and Kate are being considered for National Merit Finalist status. Approximately one-half of the Finalists will be awarded a share of more than $36 million in scholarship money. National Merit Finalists will be announced in the spring. Chelsea is the daughter of Kyle and Rose Green and Kate is daughter of John and Carla Jones.
Congratulations, Chelsea and Kate!
