Congratulations to Bloomfield Hills High School National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists! Students Toby Buckfire, Sophia Cao, Kevin Jia, Pooja Kannappan, and Cami Krugel celebrated this great accomplishment with a breakfast with family, district leaders, BHHS administrators, and their high school guidance counselors.
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 95 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
