Canterbury School produces seven semifinalists in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program
Seven Canterbury School seniors are among about 16,000 nationally to be named semifinalists in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program. Semifinalists represent less than one percent of high school seniors who took the qualifying exam.
These students now compete for Finalist status and will receive notification in February if they will continue to advance toward a National Merit Scholarship.
Congratulations to Onyebuchi Ekenta (Lehigh Acres), Alexander Feiock (Fort Myers), Jack Hackett (Charlotte Harbor), Robert Learsch (Cape Coral), Zach Leatherman (Cape Coral), Sean Mina (Cape Coral) and Jordan Wingenroth (Fort Myers).
Onyebuchi Ekenta also qualified as a Semifinalist in the National Achievement Scholarship Program, an academic competition for black American high school students. Onyebuchi will have a chance to move to Finalist status and will compete in the National Achievement Scholarship Program for merit scholarship awards.
More than 1.5 million students took the qualifying test and entered the National Merit Program, a nationwide competition for recognition and awards conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
