Lewisville ISD (LISD) is proud to announce 296 high school seniors were recently recognized for their outstanding academic achievement by The National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSP) and the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP).

Of the 296 students, 67 were named National Merit Semifinalists, 196 National Merit Commended and 33 National Hispanic scholars.

NMSP begins when about 1.5 million high school students meet the requirements to enter the competition for recognition and college scholarships, typically in the fall of their junior year, by taking the preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test administered at more than 22,000 schools across the nation. The College Board's NHRP program recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the test.

Two-thirds of these students are named Commended Students on the basis of a nationally applied qualifying score. Students in this group receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding performance on the qualifying test and their potential for success in challenging college studies

Approximately 16,000 semifinalists were named in the 65th annual NMSP. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 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 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
