Seniors Recognized for Outstanding Achievements in 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program
Four Skaneateles High School students were called down to the office on Tuesday morning. The students were unsure of why they were called down until Principal Greg Santoro invited them into his office and congratulated them for their outstanding achievements in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
Owen Gay, Eleanor McSwain, and Jillian Scott were named Commended Students, placing among the top 50,000 students who took the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
Additionally, Lili Winkelman was named a Semifinalist of the National Merit Scholarship Program. Approximately 16,000 students are recognized as Semifinalists in the program. Lili will continue in the competition and will have the opportunity to advance to the Finalist level.
Santoro said that the students will also be recognized at the High School's Academic Awards Night and at Commencement.
