Two HSSD Seniors Named 2024 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Two Howard-Suamico School District students were named 2024 National Merit® Scholarship Program Semifinalists in the 69th annual National Merit Scholarship Program, ranking in the top one percent of all U.S. high school seniors. 

The semifinalists, seniors at Bay Port High School, are Addison Aird and Ananya David. 

High school juniors entered the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2023 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screening of entrants. In the coming months, they have an opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $28 million. 

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level of the competition. This includes a detailed application outlining the semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received, as well as an essay, additional test scores, and an endorsement from a school official. 

Congratulations, Addison and Ananya!
