Peter Lugthart and John Eric Miller, both of Rocky Face, have been named National Merit semifinalists for the 2013-2014 school year. They are seniors at The McCallie School in Chattanooga.
According to the school, “This prestigious academic honor places these students among the top 1 percent, or roughly 16,000, of the more than 1.5 million juniors who took the Preliminary SAT last year.”
“These boys have positioned themselves at the head of the class of all high school students nationwide,” Headmaster Kirk Walker said. “McCallie is extremely proud of their hard work and dedication.”
All semifinalists will now be considered for National Merit finalist status and could be one of about 8,000 students across the nation to earn National Merit scholarships to the college or university of their choice.
