Northport seniors Madeleine Kestler-DeWan, Katie Sierra and Nathaniel Wang were named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship program.
To qualify for this program, students were required to take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test along with 1.6 million other students last year. The three Northport seniors wcored among the top 16,000 students nationwide.
Semifinalists will now compete for the final 7,500 National Merit Scholarships by continuing their journey towards academic excellence and scoring well on the upcoming SAT.
