8 Xavier Students Receive National Merit Scholarship Recognition
Eight Xavier College Preparatory seniors have been recognized for excellence in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Competition.
According to the Paradise Valley Independent, three Xavier seniors — Claire Fleming, Katherine Hann, and Brooke Howard — were named Semi-Finalists. Meanwhile, five others — Jordan Bassett, Eleanor Carlos, Kate Hubbard, Elizabeth Self, and Kate Straneva — were named Commended Students in recognition of their exceptional academic promise.
Those students named semi-finalists are in the running to receive a National Merit Scholarship in the spring, and represent the top half of one percent of those who took the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
