DAYTON — Five Carroll High School seniors who were named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists in September 2016 have earned the distinction of National Merit Scholarship Finalist for the Class of 2017.
The College Board selected Julia Arnold, Ryan Buechele, Maeve Curliss, Alex Dingus, and Angela Smith based on their outstanding scores on the 2015 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualification Test. All five students scored all had a selection index of 217 out of a maximum of 228.
Carroll High School Principal Matthew Sableski said, “There are 1.5 million students who take the PSAT each year. To have five students place in the top 1 percent in a single year is extraordinary. Their achievement is a testament to their hard work, supportive families, and excellent preparation from teachers not only in high school, but in grade school as well. We are very proud of these outstanding scholars.”
Fourteen Carroll High School students have qualified as National Merit Scholarship Finalists since the 2012-13 academic year.
