Fifteen members of the class of 2009 were named National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists this week. They took the Preliminary SAT test last fall and scored in the top 3 percent of 1.5 million high-school juniors. They are now offered the chance to submit personal high-school transcripts and essays which may eventually qualify them as National Merit Scholars. The scholarships are administered by the non-profit National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

Hanover High's semi-finalists are: Kevin Dade, Beryl Frishtick, Claire Hornig, Leah Izenson, Markus Lithell, Jessica Liu, Kelsey Maya Nichols, Linnea Osterberg, Heidi Robbins, Richard Sanderson, Anna Schults, Zachary Sheets, Nicholas Sinnott-Armstrong, William T. Smith, and Savannah Wallace.
