September 20, 2017

B. CurrieCongratulations to South Glens Falls High School senior Bryan Currie, who was named a 2018 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist last week.

Currie was one of 16,000 semifinalists named nationwide and 933 in New York State. There were 13 school districts in the Capital Region with students named as national semifinalists. To qualify, students had to score in the top one percent of all seniors from across the country on the PSAT exam.

“It’s very exciting for Bryan to be recognized as one of the top students academically in New York State and the U.S.,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Patton, Ed.D. “Bryan has worked very hard and we wish him the best moving forward.”

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) in their junior year.

In February, about 15,000 finalists will be named, and half of these finalists will receive a partial scholarship to continue their education.
