Senior Abby Wolf is a National Merit Scholarship Winner. It is rare for schools to have Semi-finalist for the awards, rarer still for schools to have Finalists, and Abby's accomplishment as a winner is a remarkable feat that few Sunnyslope Vikings have won previously.
In the words of National Merit: "The 2,500 Merit Scholar designees were chosen from a talent pool of more than 15,000 outstanding Finalists in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program. National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. The number of winners named in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the nation’s graduating high school seniors."
