SVHS 9 NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP SEMI-FINALISTS
Nine students in Spring Valley High School who are showing exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies are competing for National Merit Scholarships. They are among 16,000 semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.
High school juniors entered the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2023 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
Spring Valley’s National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists are Sanvi Divekar, Jackson Dowey, Shirhan Ganesh Babu, Abagail Greer, Emma Hook, Jisoo Lee, Ava Phelps, Iraine Taine, and Bella Ward.
About 95 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
Three types of National Merit Scholarships will be offered in the spring of 2024. Every finalist will compete for one of 2,500 National Merit® $2500 Scholarships that will be awarded on a state-representational basis. About 950 corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards will be provided by approximately 180 corporations and business organizations for finalists who meet their specified criteria, such as children of the grantor’s employees or residents of communities where sponsor plants or offices are located. In addition, about 160 colleges and universities are expected to finance some 3,800 college-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards for finalists who will attend the sponsor institution.
Congratulations to Mrs. Zweimiller!
Congratulations to Mrs. Adrienne Zweimiller on receiving one of the first mini-grants from the Richland Two Education Foundation (R2EF). The R2EF sponsored a mini-grant program open to teachers in Richland School District Two. These grants will support a wide-range of sustainable programs and student opportunities created for R2 students.
Mrs. Zweimiller is using the grant to purchase a class set of books entitled “The Soul of an Octopus” by American Naturalist Sy Montgomery. The grant will also; be used to build a stream modeling tank for her Marine Science class. The Marine Science class is a new course offered here at Spring Valley. This course offers students who are interested in studying marine biology a start towards their future.
