Eight Indian Springs seniors have advanced to become Finalists in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. Eight is the most for any school in Alabama, and more than Indian Springs has ever recorded. It is 11.43% of our senior class.
The Finalists are Caroline Beisher*, Andrew Glassford*, Wellington Jiang*, Joseph Katz*, Catherine Kung*, Emma Peng*, Andy Schwebel*, and Angela Yang.
They are among 16,000 Finalists nationwide (representing less than 1 percent of all graduating seniors) who were selected based on their achievements on the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), high SAT scores, strong academic performance, participation in school and community activities, and leadership abilities.
All Finalists have the chance to compete for one of 7,500 National Merit Scholarships (worth about $31 million) to be offered this March.
