National Merit finalists

The following diocesan students were named National Merit finalists: Grace and Samantha Fisher, sisters from Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria; and Lucas Haddock, Ben Raffier, and Zachary Elliott, from Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School in Potomac Shores.

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.
