Senior Eric Halliday finished in the top one percent on the National Merit PSAT and was named a National Merit semifinalist.

The seniors who were commended on the test included Adeer Siddiqui, Gabriel Suddeth and Nicholas Zolton.

To make it to the finals, Halliday must write an essay. If he is named a finalist, he could earn college scholarships.

“My short term goal for the rest of the year is to get into colleges and major in biomedical engineering because it’s broad, so I can go into the medical field or I could go into engineering based on what I’m interested in,” Halliday said.
