Jamie Hall, a Rockwall High School Senior, was recently named a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist. Approximately 1.6 million students across the country took the qualifying test and only 16,000 qualified for this high honor, placing Jamie in the top 1% of all students in the nation.
“We are very proud of Jamie for showing the excellence we all see in her,” said Dr. Courtney Gober, principal of Rockwall High School. “Jamie represents the best of Rockwall High School and we are very proud of her.”
There are three types of National Merit Scholarships: 2,500 National Merit Scholarships of $2,500, 1,000 corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards and 4,000 college-sponsored Merit Scholarship awards.
2017 National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced beginning in April 2017.
