UPHS' Adam Dockery Named National Merit Scholarship Program Finalist
Please join us in congratulating UPHS senior Adam Dockery for being named a finalist for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Adam was presented with a Certificate of Merit from Dr. Carpenter and Mrs. Traub in mid-February. Adam plans to attend Michigan State University in the fall.
In each annual National Merit Scholarship Program, about 50,000 academically talented high school students are honored, but only some 16,000 of them are named Semifinalists. Students who qualify as Semifinalists based on their performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) are the only program participants who have an opportunity to advance to the Finalist level and compete for National Merit Scholarships. About 7,600 of the outstanding Finalists will be chosen as Merit Scholarship winners in the 2020 competition.
