5 ASFA Students Named National Merit Semifinalists

Congratulations to our five National Merit Semifinalists: William Bittner, Dexter Gard, Parker Hull, Levi Johnson (not pictured), and Daniel Zhao!
William is in the creative writing department, Parker and Levi are in the music department, and Dexter and Daniel are in the math-science department.
They were selected as National Merit Semifinalists from among more than 1.5 million entrants nationwide who took the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
The nationwide pool of Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, and includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
