DHS and MVHS Seniors named National Merit Scholarship Finalists

Senior Carson Miller at De Soto High School and seniors Olivia Peters and Georgia Hansen, from Mill Valley High School, all advanced as Finalists in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program. This distinction places all three students in the top one percent of all high school seniors in the country.

Each senior received a Certificate of Merit to be presented on behalf of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation by their respective high schools. All three students met all the requirements to advance to the Finalist standing in the competition. These requirements included their academic record, a list of school and community participation, SAT scores and a letter of recommendation from a high school official.

About 7,140 of the outstanding Finalists will be chosen as Merit Scholarship® winners in the 2024 competition. All National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced starting in April 2024 and will conclude in mid-July.

Congratulations to all three of these outstanding students!
