Four diocesan students named National Merit finalists

Four students from diocesan high schools were named National Merit finalists.

Marie Rechter, Chloe Martin and Theresa Sheehan were finalists from St. Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax. Timothy App was a finalist from Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria.

The National Merit Scholarship Competition begins with the PSAT in the fall of junior year. Of the approximately 1.6 million entrants, only 15,000 become finalists. Becoming a finalist is the result of high test scores on the PSAT and SAT, outstanding academic achievement and strong participation in extracurricular activities.
