Paige Hemmer and Zach Ohliger Named National Merit Semifinalists
Saint James School is proud to announce that two of our seniors, Paige Hemmer and Zach Ohliger, have qualified as National Merit Semifinalists. We are so proud of their hard work and dedication which have earned them this national distinction. Only approximately 16,000 Semifinalists were chosen from more than 1.5 million high school juniors across the country, representing less than 1% of high school seniors. This is an incredible honor that highlights the outstanding achievements both students have earned through a combination of their 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, academic record, leadership abilities, honors and awards received, and participation in school and community activities. Paige and Zach will go on to compete for National Merit Finalist which will be announced in early 2021. The National Merit Scholarship Program will award 7,600 scholarships nationwide, totalling more than $30 million.
