Sacred Heart Academy's own Kristen Byrne '19 has been named a finalist for the National Merit Scholarship.
Kristen was one of the original 16,000 Semifinalists that were named in September 2018, and she is now one of the 15,000 students who have met all requirements to advance to Finalist standing in the competition.
Kristen had been named a Semifinalist after being recognized for her exceptional academic promise. She placed among the top scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking last year's Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) is now working on the selection process of about 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners from the group of finalists. The NMSC will begin mailing scholarship offers to winners in March. Good luck, Kristen!
