Three senior semifinalists in National Merit Scholarship

Two Kettle Run High School seniors and one Fauquier High School senior have been named semifinalists in the 64th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Kettle Run High School seniors Miles Housley and Natalie Seyler, and Fauquier High School senior Mark Zitzmann represent three out of 16,000 national semifinalists.

Semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.

About 7,400 scholarships worth about $33 million will be awarded to finalists next spring.

In addition, nine seniors from Fauquier County Public Schools were named commended students in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. These students placed in the top five percent out of 1.6 million students across the nation who entered the competition.

High school students enter the scholarship program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

The following nine students received letters of commendation from their schools and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in recognition of their exceptional academic promise:

• Fauquier High School: Abigail Myers, Masashi Takahashi, Ella Waide.

• Kettle Run High School: Ethan Jakum, Joseph Kim, Josefina Krasny, Joseph Rowell, and Zachary Williams.

• Liberty High School: Caitlin McCaslin.
