More than 1.5 million students entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT, NMSQT), which serves as an initial screen of program entrants.

To become a finalist, these students and a high school official submitted a detailed scholarship application, in which they provided information about their academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.

“Our students have earned a prestigious honor for themselves and their schools,” said Dr. Del Phillips, Director of Sumner County Schools. “This recognition is a culmination of their hard work and dedication. They are excellent ambassadors for Sumner County, and we are excited to see what they accomplish in the future.”
