Wednesday, 23 October 2013

October 23-- RTCA senior Sarah Payne has qualified as a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Of the 1.5 million students competing by taking the Practice Standardized Aptitude Test (PSAT), only 16,000 students - less than one percent of each state's high school seniors - qualify as Semifinalists.

ImageSarah is now eligible to become a Finalist in the program, which would make her eligible for National Merit Scholarships supported by independent sponsor organizations and by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation's own funds.

Sarah is the daughter of John and Helen Payne. 

Since its founding, National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) has recognized 2.9 million students and provided over 377,000 scholarships worth about $1.5 billion. The honors awarded by NMSC to exceptionally able students are viewed as definitive marks of excellence. Recipients of Merit Scholarship® awards, Achievement Scholarship® awards, and corporate-sponsored Special Scholarships have increased the nation's respect for intellectual accomplishments and have contributed significantly to its talent pool of future leaders.
