Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

CHARLOTTE — Fourteen members of the junior class at Charlotte Catholic High School will receive recognition this fall in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.

The 14 juniors are Jacob Daniel, Austin Franks, Sarah Gilles, Ariel Hobbs, Charles Nenichka, Mary Polking, John Powell, John Roselli, Connor Ruff, Lauren Schmidt, Nicholas Scibelli, Andrew Shooman, Matthew Weber, and David Williams.

Each year, more than 1.5 million students take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT).

Nationwide, the 50,000 highest-scoring students are recognized as showing outstanding academic potential. From the 50,000 high-scorers, approximately 16,000 will be named National Merit Program Semifinalists, who then will have an opportunity to continue in a competition for approximately 7,400 Merit Scholarship awards.
