Congratulations Elena Amonette - Named 2022 National Merit Semifinalist

Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Davidson Academy Senior Elena Amonette has earned this prestigious honor. High school juniors entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2020 PSAT, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. National Merit Semifinalists represent less than 1 percent of the nation’s high school graduating seniors. They are the only participants who have an opportunity to advance in the competition for some 7,500 Merit Scholarship® awards.
Elena is the daughter of Stan and Seng Amonette.  Congratulations to Elena on achieving one of the highest academic honors available nationwide to high school students!
