Manhasset Seniors Recognized As National Merit Finalists

Seven Manhasset High School seniors were named finalists in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program. Daniella Dell’Aquila, Edward Huang, Christian Kim, Julia Moosikasuwan, Jack Voelker, Katherine Wede and Marcus Wu, are among 15,000 finalists who will continue in the competition with the hopes of receiving a Merit Scholarship award.
In the fall of 2023, the seven seniors were recognized as semifinalists in the program based on their outstanding scores on the 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. To earn the finalist title, the students had to submit a scholarship application with additional details such as their academic record and an essay. Each Manhasset student earned a Certificate of Merit for reaching the finalist level.
This year, approximately 7,140 National Merit Scholarships will be presented to students based on their abilities, skills and accomplishments. According to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, about half of the finalists are expected to win a scholarship and earn the Merit Scholar title.
The Manhasset Public Schools congratulates these seven seniors on this outstanding achievement and wishes them the best of luck as they continue in the competition.
