The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced May 6 that three Lake Washington School District students will receive National Merit $2500 Scholarships, including Kirkland resident Jeremy Harrison of Tesla STEM High School.
These students are three of the 2,500 distinguished high school seniors nationwide to win this scholarship. They were selected from a talent pool of more than 15,000 outstanding Finalists in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. Fifty students were selected statewide for these awards.
National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. A committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors selected these students as Scholarship winners. These Scholars may use their awards at any regionally accredited U.S. college or university.
