National Merit Semifinalist 2021

By CHS staff


Will Joyce '21 has been named a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program. He is competing along with other talented high school seniors from around the nation to earn one of the prestigious National Merit Scholarships that will be awarded next spring. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.

In order to advance to Finalist status, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation will evaluate each Semifinalist's academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.

Will Joyce will find out in February if he has advanced to the Finalist level.

Congratulations and best wishes, Will!
