Katherine Loftus '15 – National Merit Semifinalist

Rosary is proud to recognize and congratulate senior Katherine Loftus who was recently named a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship competition!

Last October about 1.4 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screening of program entrants. Approximately 16,000 were named Semifinalists; these scholars are the highest scorers in each state and represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.  Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to Finalist status.  Finalists will be named in February, and the anticipated 15,000 Finalists will compete for scholarships sponsored by corporations, business organizations, and colleges.

The entire Rosary community extends hearty congratulations to Katherine for her very noteworthy accomplishment.  We give her all our best wishes as she moves forward in competition for a scholarship award.
