Senior Ellie Hughes is National Merit Semifinalist

Annie Wright senior Ellie Hughes was one of only four students in Tacoma to be named a National Merit Semifinalist.

The National Merit Scholarship Program, established in 1955, is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the competition by taking the PSATs.

Honorees were in the top 1% of highest scores on the 2017 PSAT, taken by 1.6 million high school juniors last year. Most semifinalists go on, through an application process and continued high achievement, to become finalists, eligible for scholarships.

Congratulations Ellie!
