About a dozen Parkway students around Ballwin received honors from the National Merit Scholarship program, the Parkway School District announced Wednesday.
Roughly 1.5 million juniors in a pool of 22,000 high schools entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program entrants.
Approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title and receiving either a National Merit $2,500 scholarship, corporate-sponsored Merit Scholarship award or a college-sponsored Merit Scholarship award.
